    So, i am right on the verge of buying a set of Fox shocks for my Pioneer 700-4. Anyone that has done so, is it worth $1300.00? Is the ride that much better? Does it seem to keep all wheels on the ground a little better?

    I haven't logged many hours on mine since put them on but it seems to be well worth the money so far.

    best investment i've made, i got the WE non adjustable and i usually run 4 people and a dog in mine and they handle the surprise woops alot better and doesnt bottom out hard at all. i notice that i can run about 10 mph faster through rougher terrain too.

    Adding Fox shocks was one of the first things that I HAD to do - the stock shocks are just horrendous. The ride is night and day smoother with the Fox's - with no more worries about bottoming out going through the dips. The dog riding in the back may have appreciated them more than me :)

    Swsebek- After some research, it appears you are running fox shocks with a strong made lift... I have a 2017 p700-4 with strongmade lift and just ordered fox QS3’s. I am curious to how your rig has held up with the lift and fox shocks. Did you adjust the shocks preload any to add or lower them any?
    Thanks in advance!

    Pappyo- wish I hadn’t of already ordered my shocks, I’d just buy yours and save some bucks...
    On another note, how did yours perform when paired with a lift kit? Did you adjust the preload any or leave them like you received them?
    Thanks.

    I went with factory setting in the end
    After I tried a few changes returned to factory settings.
    As others have stated huge difference in ride comfort.
