It's been awhile! I have a drop rack suspension question for yall.

I now have a 2014 Sportsman 800, I installed a Guide Gear drop rack and was wondering if bumping up the shocks would bring it back to its normal ride height since it sag a little now.  And I mean the normal ride height without a load in the basket.  Thanks!

    Im surprised your new rack actually makes your atv sit lower. Anyway, you can try bumping up the shocks. It may give you a little extra ride height but it will also make your suspension stiffer.

    I'm with Bcom, wouldn't think it would be that heavy.

    Probably some bad shocks or the bales of weed he's hauling are heavier than he thinks.
