The 09 rears are 160# for the tall and short springs, and the fronts are a 160 short with the same long as the 08's, which I believe are 120#

According to the polaris online part numbers, the front of the 09 450 mxr is 120 long and 140 short. The 525 has a 180 short. all the long ones are the same for what i can find, for the front on all 08,09's

The rear of mine (08 525 SRA), IS 500 long one, 8.5" and the short one just says progressive.

The rear of the 09's 400 long, 600 short for the 450's
and the 525 SRA is shown at 400 long and 500 short.

Also this rear spring above #7043093-293 400 in lbs ,is tha same on the 05,06,07 predators.


specs on these are brought up when searching for the item and price on snows polaris web site.

Ummmm, So now that the data is here in front of us, maybe it can be used to help answer my question. My '05 TLD SRA rear shock seemed to be sprung about right for my weight and riding style. My '08 SRA 525 now seems too stiff. If I ride it REALLY aggressively and really punch the jumps, it responds OK, but most of the time it sits and rides too high, and bucks back badly when I am riding a more relaxed pace. I am assuming the spring rate is too high. Am I on the right track here?

The shock on the outlaw sra has too long of a body, it is actually running out of shock on you

SSJEFF, if it is too long, what do I do with it? I have heard of guys having them shortened 3/4 inch. Do they then use longer springs too? What if I could re-design the mount points to lower the back end? Would I then want a longer spring too? This stuff confuses me.

You need to talk to ronnie of wilson racing up in jeffs sig. He probable still has my take off there yet, he had one ready for me.

Mine is now shorter by an inch or better, it lowered the rear a little, and the springs are not even close to what it was.

Do to front to rear balance, he will and you should want to do your fronts also.

SSJEFF are you saying that changing the rear spring rate 100 lbs will not help with the ride quality???
