Don't want to get too fancy just want to get the rear clearance where it should be. And be able to put gas and camping gear in the back. Has anyone had success with vi shocks on their 3 seater.

We probably have 100s of posts on this thread about rear shocks. I’ve read that the vi Shocks I have served people well on the three seater. Some people getby with just spacers and others buy aftermarket shocks. If you search the forum you might run across a few aftermarket dealers. Some of these shocks carry various loads as you probably already know

I have been very happy with the pvc spacers that cost only a couple of bucks. They have held up fine through a bunch of years and I still have full clearance.

i am very happy with my shock therapy springs,the only issue is that I didn't buy the front springs at the same time as the back because they don't list the front separately..it came to around 600 ca for back springs in Canada,

Curious to know if you checked out the EPI springs also, I have found them here in Edmonton, Alberta for 75 each(rear), no listing for the fronts though.

I am just ordering the EPI rear springs now, Ill keep an update as to how they work during this hunting season. I thought that I may get away with the spacers that were installed last year, and gave me an extra 2inch travel, they have now sagged and I cant even open my door once rig is loaded, and onto my trailer now. I will be leaving the spacers in, with the new springs, so it wont really be a fair comparison, but I need the extra height for clearance out in the logging blocks for all those stumps. Hopefully it wont be tooooo rough for the ride.

Finished installing the new EPI shock springs onto the rear of the beast, brought back up to 13.5 inches. Granted, that is just sitting in the garage after install, I would expect them to settle out some. Does anyone out there have any ideas as to why there is a 1/4 inch difference less on the drivers side( yes both tires are equal)
Just for information sake, here is also a copy of my bill, just so you guys up here in Alberta, can see where I purchased them from.

Sorry, some of my pics were added twice, and, as I am a bit of a techno handy capper, cant figure out how to remove them.
