Question of the day......

My 1997 Indy 500 carb comes with an Xtra-10 suspension in front and rear. The shocks are Indy Select hyraulic in the rear and Nitrogen Cell, threaded adjustible in the front. I will need to replace them this season or next, are the gas shocks going to give me enough of a better ride to warrant the cost? Are kimpex gas good enough or will I have to buy Fox or Ryde shocks to make a noticable difference? Cost of the Kimpex gas over the hydraulic is $40. Let me know what you think.

Thanks [:)]

My personal experience has been that SOME kimpex parts are okay however if the part has no waranty once it's been installed like shocks and electrical components, stay away from it.
I installed a kimpex shock on my last sled and it blew on the first trip out. I couldn't return it because of their return policy.

I've run Kimpex on my A/C EXT and Polaris XLTs with no troubles for 2 seasons. I would only run gas though. Fox seemed awfully expensive to me but then again, I've never tried them.
