Shock Therapy has just unveiled new suspension kits for the Polaris Ranger XP 1000 and the Can-Am Defender HD7 and HD10. The kits include fully adjustable springs, and if you want to push it a step further, you can order Fox QS3 shocks to accompany the springs.

If you want to compete with your buddy’s sport side-by-side in your utility rig, this is the way to go. The kit, along with the Fox shocks, changes your workhorse into a sportier vehicle. Shock Therapy uses high-grade CrSi material, guaranteeing high-quality spring rate without fading, and the kits are made in the USA. Both kits are a direct bolt-on upgrade from stock and require no modification to fit.

If you opt for the springs and shocks, you’ll get two levels of adjustability: a threaded preload adapter and collar, and a three-position shock damping adjustment. Position one will keep it flexible for rock crawling and technical trails, position two will stiffen up the suspension if you’re carrying extra weight, and position three will make the shocks as stiff as possible, keeping you from bottoming out when speeding through rough terrain.

Shock Therapy offers options for two-door, four-door, and three different shock widths, so the year of your Defender or Ranger doesn’t matter all too much. The spring kit goes for around $600, and the shocks will set you back $3,000. If you don’t mind the prices and want to check out the shocks for yourself, visit
