does anyone know if the rear shock is longer on earlier LTs than on more recent model LTs?

That I don't know, but my 2004 is 15.75" center to center on the mounting holes.

Re: rear shock length

Old thread, new question.

Ive got a 2005 LT rear shock for sale and someone with a 2003 is interested in purchasing.

Will it fit, as he says part numbers in the Max fiche are different ( which they are )?.

Thanks.

Re: rear shock length

The 2005 shock is also nearly 20% more expensive.

Re: rear shock length

The rear shock for 2005 and up has a better damping curve that the earlier shock, so therefore more $$. They are the same length.
