I don't have a huge budget for shocks this year. Eventually I'll do Houser A-arms and stage 3, $4000! For around a grand I can do stage 1 with stock a-arms. I read one forum where they got 25% off their Elka shocks with a group buy.
basically two questions here:

I believe Baxter has Stage 1 Elka's at least up front, anyone else? What do you these shocks do for performance vs OEM? Is anyone running Elka Stage 1 front and rear?

Next, anyone want to get in on a group buy, maybe direct from Elka so we cut out the middleman or arranged through a vendor if necessary?

make sure you know what you really want before buying. if you buy s1 fronts and later want a arms it will coast about 400 more to make your s1 schocks work with long travle and i would go with the s1+r which has rebound adjustments. i think you will be happier if you run your stock ones a little longer and save up for s2 or s3 shocks. i absoulutly love mine

That sounds like good advice. I'll run the stock ones for another 8 or 9 months and just get the 3s with A-arms. I do want to race in the desert here locally in Az this September. I'll go stock and just get some racing experience with them. I need to start working some extra shifts so I can get what I want and not settle for less.
