Post How To: XP Shocks on S or +6
Let me start by saying my install is on a +6 SuperATV aluminum kit. With the Steel +6 kit or the normal "s" arms, you have to cut the lower shock mounts off and weld them on the correct location.

1. Remove stock shocks
2. Let you suspension droop until there is cv bind
3. Mount the top of the xp shocks
4. Lift up on the arm so there is no cv bind and then determine where your lower shock mount needs to be
5. Drill new holes or weld you lower shock mounts*
6. Bolt up the bottom of the shocks **
7. Drive your RZR and make adjustments to the shocks

* On the front I had to drill 1 new hole closer to the hub and the back I was able to use the stock holes
** I had to cut off the tabs that the plastic guard bolts to on the back shocks

Front lower shock mount. You can kinda see how I drilled a new hole to mount the lower mount further out.
