Have you spent any time working with your shocks on it?...still have the XT shocks?
Are the front shocks on the front and rear on the rear?.... a high percentage of shocks were installed backwards. BLRs were, switched them to the correct placement and it still rode like a farm truck....then loosened the spring pre-load nut way looser than in the manual and made a world of difference thru the sand whoops.
But still after a better ride, so Elkas are ordered and soon will be here.
