I'm sure someone has done it before but I couldn't find anything. I took 2013 ranger 900 stock rear shocks and put them in my ranger 570. I removed my rear marshal motoart 2.5" lift and bolted in the shocks. It gave me more lift with it set on the softest setting and I can't believe how smooth the rear rides now and no more sag to the bed. The XP shocks are 2" longer than the stock 570 ones. The only thing you need to do to bolt it in is put the stock 570 top bushing in the XP shock.

No and the 900 shocks are pretty common since most people around here lift theirs and replace them. The coil is about 1/16th thicker than stock so the coils might work as good as ev springs

Excellent approach and as you mentioned, many on this forum modify "stock machines including and not limited to 900's", so what can be gained on units like yours (I have the same unit) which might pick up from stock 900 components? Very interesting and I will stay tuned!

Best thing about your mod...while it does give you good lift, you aren't greatly increasing the overall downward travel of the suspension which could in turn cause issues with the rear axles, great idea! Now to find a dependable source for these...Maybe some of the custom shops that swap these out for aftermarket suspensions!
Side note: what year/model of XP did yours come from?

Cheers

Ok I want to make a correction. The shocks are from the front of a ranger 900. The guy I got them from had 2 sets and he gave me 2 sets of fronts the rears are 22.5" center of hole to center of hole. The front 900 shocks are 18.5" center to center and the stock midsize are 16.5" center to center. I have 100 miles on them so far and love the ride and height it gives me.

So you put the front shocks off the 900 front and rear on yours?
