Ok so I have a 95 XLT SKS it has an xtra 10 with a 133 in the back the front is stock IFS im pretty sure and the shocks are junk. So I have a line on all the pieces to and xtra 12 front suspension I am going to purchase them and put the xtra 12 on the front of my XLT. My qustion is after I get it installed am I going to need to adjust or move my skid cause the sled is going to sit up a considerable amount in the front am I going to have to do anything in back ??. any help would be great thanx in advance XLT_DEMON

Not worth your time. I did it on a '91 Indy Classic, and I'd never do it again. Keep your Xtra 10.

That sled did not come with Xtra-10, it came with XC-100 (AKA xtra-8) and 7.25" front suspension.

In order to upgrade that you'll need a bellypan with taller shock towers to clear the suspension.

As for lowering the rear susp, lifting the sled will make the sled more top heavy. You can probably make it more rideable without lifting the sled by loosening the front limiter straps.

your right about it bing XC-100 in the front but i have an xtra 10 in the back but as far as it not being compatible for an xtra 12 up front i have seen it done so i am sure it would work but would it ride better with just an xtra 10 up front maybe?

I did an xtra 12 swap on my 94 XLT and there is alot of work to get it to fit and work it is not just a shock change. If you can get a extra 10 set up go that route.
