I am looking to get some Elka shocks and i found this on ebay and just wanted to see if you guys think this is a good deal?

Yes and no. Yes, it's a good price... direct from Houser, this same setup is $2600.90. However, these are for FRONTS only and would not be set up for your weight... as in ordering them from Houser or Elka direct. I might add that these shocks may be too much shock for the average rider... lots of things that you probably don't need... such as the high and low speed compression adjustments. JMO
You might be better off with long travel a-arms and perhaps Stage 2+... save lots of money anyway.... $1570.00 for the Elite's compared with $940.00 for Stage 2+

Just to clarify, these will be set up to your weight, even states in the auction they will be built to your specs. When you order Elka shocks from a Elka dealer, they pass on the info directly to Elka, Elka then builds the shocks and they are sent to either you, or to the company you ordered from and then they ship to you. I have owned three sets of Elka's in the past, and even though I ordered them from a different Elka dealer each time, they still came from Elka. Unless you are buying used, a Elka shock should always come setup for you.

Yes, this is a good deal, but like Roadkill says, You may or may not need the extra adjustments. I also saw listings for the same setup with compression only and compression and rebound for cheaper. I have ordered a few things from ATV Galaxy and have never had a problem, good prices and has always shipped fast, but I do agree with Remingtonsteel, see what Wiigstyle can do for you, since he is a site sponsor.

I doubt they'll honor eBay prices.

Thanks guys, I will give Wiigstyle a call. I'm hoping to get some work done at trinity racing and get some shocks on it and get back out to the dunes.
