I just purchased a 2015 Ranger 900xp eps with 16,000 miles on it. The shocks along with pretty much everything else are shot and need to be replaced! I found a set of brand new OEM shocks for a 2017 Polaris Ranger 1000 XP. The Suspension parts A-Arms etc on both vehicles are the same. The mounting position of the shocks are the same though the shocks are different part numbers. The Rears look identical though the fronts are different. Comparing the 2015 front shocks with the 2017: Both shocks are exactly the same length. The difference is the 15 has a shorter shock body and a longer shaft. The 17 has a longer shock body and a shorter shaft. though both vehicles are rated with 10" of travel, I would personally think the longer shaft would give you more travel and better ride. The longer body will give you more fluid, keeping the shock cooler...though a rougher ride. Question is... is it a rougher ride? Or, did Polaris improve the shock and the longer shaft travel was unnecessary. if I use the 2017 1000xp shocks on my 15 900xp, any ideas on how the ride will be affected?


Look forward to any feedback!

More than likely it will be a smoother ride. If you buy new shocks for your '15 model it will be the new part # according to parts fiche.
Part # 7043755 is spec'd for the 900 XP from '13 through '19 and the 1000 XP in the 900 style body and the new full size SOHC 1000 for '20.
My '17 900 XP rides really good with those shocks.
