While investigating shocks for my BMW I came across these:

http://www.gorancho.com/products/shock-absorbers/rs9000xl-shock-absorber/rancho-rs9000xl-shock-absorber-rs999186.html

The install procedure should be the same as in the write up a few pages back. They're made for an Isuzu Rodeo which has a similar curb weight to the Rivi. Best part is they're 9 way adjustable and have a really beefy design. Have fun!

I'm hesitant to recommend this mod anymore as it seems the Ranchos are failing after a few thousand miles for some reason.

They definitely transform the rear end if dialed up to a high setting, at the cost of ride quality, and it's odd to have a smooth stock ride in front and a harsh sports car ride in back.
