I am curious as well. When I looked at them at the Snowdeo it looks like it’s just the spindle and upper a-frame. What I don’t know is if there are different mounting points.

I bet the mounting points have not changed and it’s a direct bolt up. It would put a lot of weight to the back by raising it so some adjustments would need to be made in the back but that’s easy.

I’m sure you probably watched this

I wonder if it requires a different length shock? The lower mount point is significantly higher.


I can see how the handling can change quite a bit with the new geometry. That is a bigger factor than the clearance.

From what I've been able to find out, the only changes are the new upper A arm and the taller forged spindles. The rest stayed the same....including the mounting locations.

I can see where the extra length below the lower arm would help in giving the front end more bite. It's adding more ski pressure without having to adjust anything else (limiter straps, etc).

I'm just curious as to why you'd want to make this update?

I may have to go for it. Did the shock lengths stay the same?

Yeah...cheap and easy I guess. I just wonder what the real gains may be. I guess I'd prolly rather dump that money into some revalving or something other in the handling area.
