Frankenstorm!!

Hey everyone... First post in years used to be on here all the time.
Had a polaris xlt now im riding a few sleds.. anyways my question was regarding my
what i believe is a 94 polaris storm with a 96 storm 800 motor.. I was wondering about a
Fox shox for the front swap would require for the procedure.. and if its even worth it.. the fox shox is from a 96xlt.. also i can find much info about the 94 storm.. anyone with any experience. thanks

my 87 indy 600 has fox shocks in rear on an xtra 10 and its definatly worth it in the rear. but the front im not so sure. storms are very similar to xlts and regular indys just with different motors.

Measure the shocks eye to eye and I bet you will find the '96 shocks quite a bit longer than the '94s, as that Storm has standard IFS and that XLT has XTRA-12. A swap would require the substitution of trailing arms and radius rods from the XLT as well. I wouldn't bother with an XTRA-12 front end. If you want to use Fox shocks without changing all the other suspension components, '95 XCR 440 or 600 shocks would be the right fit.

Here are some specs on your Storm: Find the ATV Polaris part or Polaris snowmobile part you need, new ,used, OEM, aftermarket and performance parts, Polaris ATV Forums
