I got a 96 polaris xlt with the xtra 12. I cannot find hydraulic shocks for the front anywhere; only the expensive gas shocks. I'm a college kid and don't want to spend that kind of money. Can anybody read the numbers on their's if they're the original hydraulic ones or does anyone have any ideas as where to get a pair of these? I already tried hudsons in NY and Als in Vermont and had no success. All the polaris dealers tell me is i can only order them in gas. Any info would be awesome
