  1. 700-4
I started off with a basic 700-4 new. added razor 550/570 rear shocks to the front to get adjustability. not sure if they are any better than stock. an inch or so short of stock. I added strong made strut relocation brackets which was a bit of a pain, mostly because the factory rear shocks are long enough to really make getting the mounting bolts in difficult . as a side note my sway bars are unbolted and zip tied up and have been since purchased. the ride seemed a bit better with the new front shocks then with the strong made lift it did seem smoother but not so much the average rider could tell in my opinion. overall for the cost im ok with the ride and I can adjust the fronts. I added 27 inch tusk terrabite front 9 wide and rear 11 wide with stock steel wheels cause I like the steel wheels and wanted to keep the larger rear tires for flotation, gravel bars and snow. the stock tires on the front wore down at 1000 miles so I wanted something more capable for the majority of our use. we do a lot of just paved and gravel roads. At the finish I gained an inch or so in the front and a bit more in the rear, feels more stable than stock and in off camber and at speed around courners. Just my take to get a bit better ride and an inch or so lift. I will add pictures as soon as I figure it out. added a bit of width which I believe the pioneer 700 needs. I may do spacers in the future but for now the track width seems equal and I shouldnt need additional mud guards.

Looks good 👍🏼

Welcome to the forum from South Florida 🤘🏼

I'm not too familiar with the 7hundos but I know some guys add front P1K shocks all around to gain some ground clearance. Lots of ideas around here, read up and enjoy 👍🏼

Thanks. I’ve had the rig since June. Satisfied overall. Took awhile to get use to the gear noise. Finally settled down a bit. Got the larger tires for better ride and maybe a bit more speed. Like the improvements so far.

Update on the suspension mods posted previously. Just after the lift I added 1 inch spacers up front and 1.5 in the rear. For increased track width. Removed the rear strong made lift as it jacked it up like a stink bug and i believe it decreased droop.
Have about 500 miles on this set up and it’s a good compromise. The machine has gotten quieter after the first thousand. Still a clanky beast. Billygoat for sure. Good machine for our lifestyle. Mostly road with woods and work. Really want low gear.
Thanks to the group here. Good information
