If you are looking for a better ride and not wanting to break the bank go with a pair of YFZ 450 shocks on the front of the Brute Force. I put them on my 2016 and it made a night and day difference for 200$. On the back i took off the front stock shocks and replaced the springs with some EPI HD springs. Since the YFZ shocks are a little bit longer it made my Brute Squat. The front stocks are about an inch longer in the front than back. Now it sits a little higher but rides completely different.
