18 ZR6000 el Tigre ZR6000ES shocks

Looking to upgrade the shocks on our 18 ZR6000ES with the 1.5 QS3 shocks from a 18 ZR6000 El Tigre. I am thinking they should be interchangeable. Does anybody know this for sure?
Thanks

Owning a Thundercat is like having a totally hot wife..... All of your friends want to see it, feel it and check it out..... They all want to know what it is like to ride it, but if they only knew how much time and money it takes to keep one up, they would call you a fool!

Seen in a DOO forum

"Of all the 850 vs Sidewinders/Thundercat/ZR 9000's; you are the first I have ever heard that beat one. I know the 850 is strong but it's down 30 hp from the turbo sleds.
I have a low slung fully built( by a well know engine builder) 3 cylinder 800 cc that made multiple dyno pulls over 200 hp on a calibrated Land and Sea dyno and I barely pull my buddy on his stock Thundercat. And I do have video."

Things on NASA headphones that are not good;
"That supposed to be like that?" "What the hell was that?" "Did you just pee in your spacesuit"

Ask yourself if you really need the adjustment of the QS-3. I've got them on one sled and after I sent them off to Mike Carver for high-flow pistons and shim stacks built for my weight, I only changed the setting once all season. I've mostly used the guys that are close to me; Steve Dey, Dave Schumacher, Willie/MyShockshop and several others and they all do great work. Carver's work made these the best working shocks I've ever had.

Save your money and have Mike Carver do his magic on the shocks you have.....You won't be disappointed.

Hugh has done more to a sled than I'll ever know

All great advice but this is for the wife’s sled, one day she may want a little stiffer some days or places a little softer. We are old now so some spirited trail riding is about our limits.

Is the place you speak of carver performance out of Minnesota? I looked his website and couldn’t find anything about rebuilding shocks.

What he said. Now is the time of year to get work done because sled race season is over. Now they'll get busy again; ATV's and they have those huge trophy truck shocks sent in also. Mikes work may cost a little more which doesn't bother me. You get what you pay for.

Call Carver Performance, tell Mike about your wife(you know, honest weight and such), tell him how she REALLY rides, send him the wife's shocks and you(and she) will be amazed at the difference in the way her sled rides and handles...........Two hundred bucks and shipping, and my wife has a totally different experience on her sled.......
