Hey i was wondering if yfz 450s use the same shocks in the front as the raptor 700 and if they dont are they as good or should i wait for a pair of true raptor 700 piggyback shocks.

700 shocks are different but the 450 shocks are just as good if not better then the 700 IIRC. If you found some YFZ one I wouldn't hesitate getting them.

I've got 450 front shocks on mine , They were on it when I bought it.
It has lowered the front a bit and with all the adjustments has made a big difference in handling compaired to the standard ones.

so that means it has better response to handling like the 450?

also would you want the 18.25 inches or the 16 7/8 inches because there are two different size for the yfz they changed the lenth in 09-10?

The yfz450 will lower the quad, I had them but I got raptor rezzy shocks that I like better just because of the ground clearance. The YFZ450r will not work they will make the front higher but if you get a set of long travel a arms the YFZ450r should make it the right height same as the raptor shock.
