The reason I'm not sure if I need remote resi or if i need 2.0 or 2.5 is that I have never owned a rig with coilovers. I called king and radflo and they both highly suggested the 2.5, they said I would be borderline between the 2.0 and 2.5 so it would be smart to just go up to the 2.5. Profender doesn't have non REM res shock on their site so that is why I did the price comparison on the 2.5 REM res. I'm not set on anything right now I just wish I could find more positive reviews of the profenders. I am just nervous about dropping all that cash and be unhappy with my purchase.


Profender-
I'm sure your shocks work great but for $200 more I can get American made shocks with a great reputation instead of something made overseas that i can't find a whole lot of reviews about.

I won't be ordering shocks until I get the buggy mocked up further so I get the correct springs and valving. Lots of time to research! If i can actually find more info about profenders I may end up saving the $200 and get them.
