Not sure that the rears have any adjustability, they probably are just a smoother shock due to the resevoir. I think they will fit, though I have not tried it. I wonder though if they are valved different to accomodate for the weight that would / could be in the back.

Well I do not have mine in front of me, but sounds like you can adjust ride height.

I would be curious to know if the valving is different than the front.

Ya I imagine the spring rates would be different as well.

You will likely not mess anything up (if they fit) but your ride quality may suffer.

Hey be the lab rat and try it out

I say go for it!. You should switch the front springs onto the New Front/rears though. Those rear springs are heavy for cargo hauling. You won't like them on the front. The shocks may work OK. Try it and keep us posted. I've been dying to get my hands on those stock shocks to see about revalving.

I agree, not sure you want to use those rear springs up front. But comeon, be the lab rat and test it out!

Yeah you bet! I think they are a better shock than the Rhino SE shocks. I would love to try to improve on the setup and come up with some spring rate options so guys that don't want to take the full plunge into aftermarket can get a better ride. Maybe I'll do it on the side$$$$
