I have a 2007 King Quad 450 that we have a sprayer on the rear rack year round and we also have an apple bin shuttle trailer on the back for most of the year. About last year the rear shocks have not been goin back up at all unless you manually lift the rear of the 4 wheeler up off the ground. The shocks have been lifted up one notch above factory height already. So I'm wondering if I should just turn the shock height up another notch or just get some new rear shocks that are heavy duty.

The main problem we are having right now is that the rear shocks are compressing to much so you can't steer the 4 wheeler sometimes which obviously causes a problem when your trying to get work done but you can't turn where you need to go.

Also the left rear sway bar end link is broken, but I don't think that would effect the amount the shocks are going down.

I'll be honest, shocks are wasted on that poor mule. Take them off, the shocks are likely blown, and replace them with steel bars instead. You won't even notice a difference driving around the yard, you'll save money on not having to buy new shocks, and it'll be safer because you'll get your steering back.

As good of an idea that is we can't do that because it needs to have suspension on it cause otherwise it can bruise the apples when you go over rough ground.
