The issue I have is that I head away for a few days at a time, and load up the back. The original shocks are OK, though the wheels have a tendency to bow in, and I was looking for some shocks that I could pretension to accommodate a higher load. I'd also hope that this would eliminate the camber lean.
I contacted an Elka Dealer, quoting the model and year of my ATV. He said that Elka could not confirm a matching set of shocks for the 700 SD Diesel. I even went as far to measure the length of the shocks from eye to eye on the bolts. What I am confused about is that they can supply a shock for a 700EFI, which is basically the same suspension as a SD diesel. Incidentally, the 700EFI has a different Arctic Cat part number for it's shocks vs a 700 SD diesel. I am wondering if this is to do with the strength of the shocks, as the SD diesel is seen as more of a work horse/utility ATV? I'd love to know the length of a shock on the 700EFI from eye to eye, as I think that that would let me confirm that the Elka shock would fit.
