Looking at upgrading suspension on my 05 XP. I figure it will be in the ballpark of $3500 - $4000 for materials and I build myself for long travel or $6500 for a bolt in kit. My question is how much improvement do you get with just the addition of aftermarket shocks such as the walker evans kit (@1500). Between spacers, forward A arms, and offset rims I have the look of long travel just not the ride. I would hate to put out $1500 for shocks to find little improvement when I could put that towards materials. I relize just shocks won't increase my travel but if they can make the 9 or so inches I have now a lot smoother I think I will give it a try.
