not cheap, i dont mind spending money on stuff that is worth it but i dont want to have my freakin shocks snap off in mid ride  :lol:

it would be just as much to get that 80 dollar piece and yfz shocks as it would to buy elkas and get them set up for me specifically

Hey, I finaly got some pic of my yfz on the warrior, well it don't fit bolt-on, they are too long, there's too much distance for them to fit.... Here's the pictures





sorry it don't fit bolt-on, unless you do a little bracket.

What i would do if I were to really do this swap, i would make a bracket that bolt to both OEM upper shock mount then extend it to fit the higher upper mount of the shock, that would do the trick, but it takes time...

get the lowering bracket vreds. Or maybe the dimondj +2 extension, but just for the a-arms, leave the shocks at stock. SHould stretch it out enough to give you some room. Or, give me the shocks. :lol:

I don't want these on my warrior, it was just to show what a yfz front shock look like on a warrior and why they don't fit ;) they're on my 700 now.
