This past weekend me and my cousin noticed my front shocks on my 02' xc 500 are not stock. I was wondering if anyone of you guys out there has a sugestion for me on what kind of shocks i should get to replace those ones. Also in my price range. Thanks!

What do you mean by not stock? What was in there? The 2002 XC 500 non-VES had regular Polaris Nitrex piece of pile shocks. The 2003 had Ryde FX in them.

*EDIT* I just looked at your pictures of your sled and those are the stock front shocks that came on that sled. I think your only chance for good shocks would be Ryde FX. Just find a pair of used ones that were off of a newer EDGE. They will be the same.

I had some compression adjustable RydeFX shock on my 600xc. Nice, but they aren't rebuildable. Try to find some used Fox shocks and have them rebuilt to your sled's requirements.

$250 new ryde fx. can't go wrong. stay away from throw aways.

That website says that Ride FX shocks ARE rebuildable! But maybe the onces you got are older or something. O well thanks. O ya and by the way does anyone else have websites or numbers that sell shocks for cheaper prices? thanks

Some ryde fx shocks are rebuildable some are not. you are not going to find a beter price on those than through pure polaris. that is a $400 kit they are trying to dump what they have.
