I hated the stock shocks so I replaced them with Progressive 11.5" 440's which were almost as bad as the stockers (they're crap). Now I have a set of Ohlins #3 #3 & they're fantastic!
My question is how do the air shocks like Arnott & Legend ride? Are they all show & only some go?
I know suspension is subjective but I'd like some feedback on air ride.

Very clever lol

How are the sharp hits? Do they bottom out at all, like on expansion joints?

I run legend and it rides nice......when I have it pretty full. I usually run around with it about an inch or so above where the back end just starts to lift. Doesn't ride as good as it could, cause I gotta look like a pimp! It does ride pretty good though considering how low it usually is.

i like how the arnotts ride. u can't beat them for the price. i.ve done a lot of them. Legends are over priced and my buddy busted the shaft on one of his. the arnotts ride better than stk, but im sure the ohlins are gonna ride the best
