Default Raw upgrade shocks or add tss?

Looking to either upgrade the shocks on my raw or a tss. Which would be the best upgrade? Only going to be able to do 1.

Interested in this as well, debating on getting an aro kit next year or just upgrading the raw kit.

My .02

If you feel the shocks are lacking........

The coin to sell and buy an aro will net you much better handling, suspension and overall bike balance.
Plus resale of a bone stock aro will be much better than a modified raw.

I'm new to the snowbike world, but I'll share the logic that comes to mind thinking about your situation.

If you're unhappy with overall travel, but okay with the damping and spring rates in the skid, I'd go TSS.

The more likely scenario is that you're unhappy with the damping and spring rates. If that's the case, then the TSS would just be a pig standing on toothpicks. There would be a weak link between the TSS and the ground, negating the good work the TSS is doing.

I would upgrade shocks before yours fall apart and potentially damage the track. All but one of the RAWs I ride with have had the front shock break. Better shocks with lighter springs are a big upgrade for flotation, ride and handling on the RAW kits as well.

Ford, chevy debate.

Guys who sell one or the other will steer you.

Guys who own one or the other will try to purchase justify.

I recommend calling/ emailing both companies and making your own decision based on how they treat you.
(As that will be an indicator of future treatment)

I’ve never bought new of either.........
Only used.

I second this, had a buddy blow the spring keepers rugby off the front shock last year. I say both and you'll be a changed man
