Ride Improvement System (RIS) Polaris Turbo S - 4 seat CALL FOR AN APPOINTMENT
Why do stock UTV’s ride the way they do? Skip to the bottom to find out why.
Stage 1: The stage one Ride Improvement System is where we dig into the heart of your shocks. We change quite a few things inside the shocks (list below) all of which are designed to make the chop, chatter and wash board go away and become extremely plush. Rear bucking is eliminated. One to two foot whoops become flat and level at high speeds and bottom out resistance is doubled to keep you from bottoming out when jumping or running the largest dunes. Basically, your car is more plush where you WANT it to be and stiffer where you NEED it to be. To maximize the stage 1 internal valving, a Shock Therapy dual rate spring kit is highly suggested. ***$749.95***
Stage 1 modifications:
- Parts that can be modified or machined
- Lower Loop
- Bump Stops
- Bypass tubes
- Extension Spring Slider
***** Internal Modifications vary dependent on application of riding and shock type******
Stage 2: This incorporates the Shock Therapy rear sway bar. We include this in the stage 2 of the Ride Improvement System because, with the Shock Therapy internal valving and our dual rate spring kit there is body roll added to the machine that the stock sway bar will not be able to handle. ***$1299.90****Out of stock on the rear sway bar until further notice***
- Solid Steel not hollow
- 40% less body roll right out of the box
- Three adjustment holes so you can tune according to your needs
- Heavy duty adjustable rear sway bar links
- Direct factory bolt on
Stage 3: Included with the stage 3 is a TRUE dual rate spring kit! Some of the benefits from the Shock Therapy dual rate spring kit are more bottom out resistance, gain in ride height, more plush over the washboard chatter and reduced rear bucking.***$2219.30*** Stage 1 & 3 can be combined***
- Lifetime Warrantied
- Made in the USA
- Tailored to your UTV specifics and driving style
Stage 4: Do you notice a lot of front end diving when cornering? If so then the Shock Therapy front sway bar is calling your name. The Shock Therapy front sway bar is going to help you track through corners quicker by stopping the front end dive on corner entry which keeps the inside rear tire on the ground. ***$2419.25*** Out of stock until further notice***
- Solid Steel
- 30% more rate
- 3 position adjustability
- Direct factory bolt on
Have you ever wondered why UTV manufacturers don’t maximize the potential of the factory suspension? It is not because they don’t want to, that is for sure. One huge reason is they have to pass the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) ground safety testing which includes a 25mph roll over test on asphalt. Manufactures are often forced to stiffen up the suspension, change springs or lower the car to pass these tests. OEM shock companies have their hands tied with regard to suspension set up since their parameters are dictated by the manufacture who have to pass these tests. Another issue is the OEM has to create a set up that works for MOST customers, forcing a one size fits all product.
This is where Shock Therapy comes in. We are able to unlock the hidden potential of the factory suspension that the OEM’s are forced to leave on the table. Furthermore, we can tailor the suspension specifically for your driving style, terrain and accessories where the OEM can’t possibly go. If you want the most plush ride quality possible while eliminating all bucking and bottoming out then you have one place to go, Shock Therapy.

I had the RIS and DRS kit installed 11/25/2020 along with front and rear sway bar links. When I pulled up to the shop my car was sitting out front and first thing I noticed was ride height increased significantly. Took her home and first thing Thanksgiving morning went out for a 5 hour ride. So far I have only drove with myself, and then my daughter as a passenger with the upgrade but I have settings from the stock Walker Evans shocks that are exclusively for me, by myself, myself with another adult, myself with my daughter, myself and both my children, and myself with another adult and my children. So far, plugging those settings back into the upgraded shocks, The stiffness was still there but they were also very much more plush and responsive going deeper into the stroke. I will explain a lil bit more: with the stock setup that I eventually blew up I had to keep increasing stiffness so as to not bottom out constantly, especially with my 11 year old son in the back that weighs 140 pounds. this was after they were "fixed." I plugged in the most recent settings for me. by myself. Example of how I did this: from a zero setting at the softest, riding bye myself, rotating the adjuster to the right to stiffen, only myself in the vehicle with the old setup it was FD12 FP11 RD10 RP10 (please keep in mind I'm not an expert and am trying to explain this as best I can). Again, the result was the stiffness was still there but they were also very much more plush and responsive going deeper into the stroke. I was able to soften everything up one click and the "edge" of the stiffness dissipated while still providing a plush, responsive ride that I have not felt the bottoming out feeling with while also retaining the benefits of a somewhat stiff setting. I can probably even soften them up a bit more. A+ so far. The first few miles I thought I was experiencing a placebo effect of sorts but after driving my tracks that I know like the back of my hand I finally realized the pill was legit. Breaking bumps were absorbed and broken down. 1 foot whoops were reduced to nothing. technical rocky and rutted tracks were smooth sailing. The huge thing I noticed was when I drove over tracks that I have down pat, so to speak, the ride would get sketchy and I couldn't figure out why. I glanced at my speedometer on one such section and noticed I was going almost 10 miles an hour faster than I normally did. This was not a hoax, I started paying attention to this and I was in fact going faster, but it didn't feel faster. I wish I could explain this more. What you have to understand is where I live my backyard is desert terrain of all kinds that takes a 2 minute drive down pavement to get to dirt and then be is shredsville for miles upon miles with nobody caring that I am out there. A+ so far. "So far," because I have not tested my other settings with other folks. I didn't have to change anything with my daughter in it from the by myself settings. The 4 star rating because, again, I have not tested with the other settings that are for more people. With more people in the car it gets a little more timely to make a good assessment but I don't doubt an overall 5 star setting when it's all said and done but we'll see. Again, keep in mind I'm not an expert and I am explaining this as best I can with only a 20-year downhill and cross country mountain bike background for suspension reference. I still have to drive her some more to make a determination on the sway bar links but she does feel a bit more solid in the turns but can't say for sure. Thank you Shock Therapysts.
