Rear shocks are done on my sled, its a 2017 Polaris Switchback Assault. I want to purchase Walker evans piggy backs like the ones on them, but I don't want to get them through Polaris as they are too expensive or ebay bc they'llbe used. Is there any site other that Polaris and Ebay I can get them from? 1st alternative is getting it from Royal distributing but problem is they don't have them for my model and they don't have piggy backs, what model could I cross reference and order for instead so I can get new shocks that fit? 2nd alternative is getting them rebuilt, I know the piggy backs are rebuildable but are the shocks themselves rebuildable?

Skid is a 144
TIA

I would check to see if your shocks are rebuildable. If the piggybacks are, it would seem to me that the shock should be, too. That will be your least expensive option. New shocks are spendy, Fox Floats will be even more than new WE's.

I'm about at that point as well... I did not put many miles on my SKS last year or the year before, I will probably be doing shocks at the end of this season, just because it's time. It's probably past time ;)

The front piggy backs were rebuilt before I got it but ig there was too much pressure on the lh side so she blew. It leans on the lh side a bit but not too concerned bout the front

I'm assuming the center and rear piggy backs can be rebuilt aswell but I don't think the shocks themselves can.

I know that in the past, most WE shocks were rebuildable. But these days, who knows? You may want to get your shock part numbers and contact Walker Evans and they can tell you.
