Fox Racing Shox - John Deere Gator XUV 825i

John Deere Gator 825i XUV Replacement Shocks

Information:

Fox Shocks offer the ability to tune the quality of the ride by adjusting the compression damping of the shock for aggressive operation or heavy load compensation. The ride tuning is accomplished by rotating a knob located on the remote reservoir on each shock. These shocks also offer the benefit of being rebuildable. All shocks have a finite life based on the quality of the oil; the shear properties of the oil break down over time, losing their damping characteristics. Fox Shocks offer the ability to replace the oil and re-lube the sealing surfaces to ensure optimum performance throughout the life of the shock.

Additionally, Fox Shocks also offer larger bodies with remote reservoirs. These larger shocks hold more oil which dissipates heat much more efficiently, therefore preventing the loss of performance during hard driving sessions; this results in a more consistent ride. If the shock, for whatever reason, does not perform to the level of the operators expectation, they can be custom tuned directly by Fox Racing to achieve the desired suspension characteristics.

The kit is available at John Deere dealers and retails for $1,549.00.  The part number isBM23479 – Fox Shocks Suspension Kit.

Compatible with all Gator model year 2011 XUV 625i, XUV 825i, XUV 855D, and M-Gator A2 Utility Vehicles.

Installation:

The Fox Shocks Suspension Kit comes with four shocks, remote reservoir mounts and hose clamps for the reservoirs.

The installation is straight-forward and takes about an hour.  Hardest part is the removal and reinstallation of the front/upper shock bolt.  Nothing too difficult, it just takes a while when you can only get 1/8 of a turn each stroke.

Factory shock bolts are reused.
