Hi, I have a 93 xltsp and was wondering if I can put extra 10 front shocks on my xlt without replacing the radius rods and tie rods? If so will it narrow my stance?

I think so. The shocks are only an inch or so longer and the control arms are less than an inch longer. If they are too tall then you can run them soft with some sag.

Typically the tolerances are pretty tight and an inch is a big deal. I personally would collapse the suspension and measure. If the shock itself bottoms out, it will break something when riding. I know this from experience. Friend put a shock that was 1/2" longer on his MXZ and it broke on the first ride and the shock rammed through the track. Not fun.

The window opening for the tie rods has a deeper opening on the Xtra 10 than on the standard 8 inch. Not saying it won't work but they changed that opening for a reason.

I'd still watch out for bottomed out. But probably not as critical on the front
