The Can Am Commander remains one of the most popular UTVs on the market, even with the hype that the introduction of the Maverick and Maverick Max brought with it. The recent introduction of the Commander Max has breathed new life into the Commander brand. While a large number of UTV owners add a Can Am Commander lift kit at some point, other suspension components are left largely ignored. It is unfortunate, as the inclusion of heavy duty tie rods and a-arms and performance shocks make the Commander’s suspension, stronger, more reliable and performance oriented. The following are a few of our favorite suspension parts for the Commander.
King Shocks is the absolute performance standard in off-road shocks.Their very recognizable, custom tuned UTV performance shock kit gives your Commander exceptional performance and ride quality. Each shock kit was developed after decades of punishing real world testing in races like the Baja 500 to develop the ideal damping curve and spring rate. These UTV shock kits are available for both stock height or long travel aftermarket suspensions. They have an easy bolt-on installation and adjustable ride height. The shocks features include anodized aircraft quality billet aluminum construction, 3/4” diameter shafts with a tensile strength of 100,000 pounds per square inch. Every shock is hard chromed and micro-polished to a glimmering finish for extended seal life. The ergonomic knob design is easy to use and the shock cylinders are precision bored to within +/- .001mm and then honed for a tight piston seal and precise valving function.
The first part to fail after the installation of a lift kit is usually the weak stock axle shafts. Lone Star Racing’s heavy duty axles are an excellent copmlement to lifts and other aftermarket suspension kits. Each axle carries an unheard-of lifetime warranty to the original purchaser of the kit. The Lone Star Racing rear shafts have been upgraded to 300M material, and the MTS+4 Axle Lengths are 22.125″ in the front, and the rear axles are 24″. XTR+6 front axles are 24.125″, and 26″ in the rear. Lone Star Racing UTV axles are backed by a limited lifetime warranty against bending and breaking.
