Just send your stock shocks to Alex reed or fcr suspension, they can respring and revalve the ones you have and save a bunch of$$

If I was getting a set of shocks and I had 2.0s that I was getting rid of I would go with The Fox Gold Series. A buddy of mine had FCR's and went to the Gold Series and said there was no comparision, FCR's beat him up and the Gold Series where like riding on a cloud. I've got three racers I'm building shocks for now that where running FCR's because they beat them up so much so be aware of that if you go that route.

The stage 5 Elka shocks are still in development and will be available very soon. With the high flow valving these shocks will be a game changer. Stay tuned

Just spoke with FCR. It sounds like they know these machines pretty well. I may go that route....
Personally, I would send them to Alex. He has a proven reputation for building shocks that work and that goes back to shocks for guys on the Teryx forum.

Yeah the car has to go back to Magnum this week to get the cage rebuilt. Maybe before my Xmas trip I can get you to rework my rear shocks to remove the bucking. I had the Fox guy adjust them at camp rzr and they are better but still room for improvement.

Do you know what they did to them adjustment wise? Anything different than what most of us are already doing?

Alex did not have any setup for the base 2" shocks. His time was spent on the 2.5's. He didn't sound interested in fooling with mine.

I talked with FCR and was told they can set mine up with single rate, dual rate, or their WORKS setup. He would spring and valve it to have a plush ride at slow speeds and work well at high speeds. What kind of setups did the people with the FCR's have? I think they make their own valves.
