What is the best front and rear suspension set up for both pulling wheelies and for snocross style riding through woods and ditches

Thanks,

Robb

take the suspension blocks out in front of your rear idler wheels and the front will come up

As Darrell said take out the rubber blocks. Front shock springs, above the black collar have 2.5" of exposed thread. For the front rear shock just turn the spring till it rattles then turn back in till no more rattling.

As for the "snocross style riding through woods" not a smart idea to do this on pubic trails but hey that your choice.

Take out your sway bar in the front it will be better for jumping and hittin bumps in ditches. i dont recogmend taking your blocks out in the back because there is no pressure on the skis to turn and the skis will onlyy be off the ground about 6 or 7 inches off with a wheelie, also those block helps your suspension in the rear so it doesnt bottom out as easy. thats what i did and i love it
