your looking at minimum 500 a shock for aftermarket. Like gwc said Works, Elkas and fox makes some as well.

I upgraded to mudpro ones and i love them good and soft and keep the ride height.

What are you trying to do? Are you attempting to get more travel, softer spring rate? Need a few more details so we can help you.

Probably gonna need spacers so they don't rub or different wheels with more offset.

I wanna put 32`s on my 2012 1000 mud pro it is lifted 2 inches what else do you need to do so they don`t rub? your`s looks bad ass
Unless the tires you buy have some big lugs on the outer edges you should clear your shock springs ok, I may be wrong though. I Ihave 30's on 14" rims with a 2" lift and have plenty of room at the shocks myself.

i had works shocks at steelers then bought black widows
I now have elka stage 4 in the rear and stage 2 in the front.
they do get expensive but imo well worth the $$
you can go from single rate to triple rate on springs
and as far as adjustments go there infinite you can dial them in for what ever terrain your riding.
I will say once you go to a good aftermarket shock you will never go back to stockers.
but if your doing it just to lift the quad id just add spring spacers.

So which stage 3’s did you buy? Do you know the Elka part number or which model they’re originally for? I want to put Elkas on my 2011 MP 1000 as well but neither the dealer nor Elka can tell me which model shocks to order since they don’t make them specifically for the MP. I was thinking about chancing it and ordering the TRV 1000 set since the machines are almost identical otherwise. Thanks. You can reply here or email me.. [email protected]

This a really old thread.
Have you contacted Elka directly?

Yes I did myself and my mechanic, as I stated neither them or Arctic cat knew if the TRV 1000 or any other model they sell would fit my MP 1000 correctly. That guy up there apparently put some on so I want to know how they worked out.
