I'm running Elka's at all 4 corners and could not be happier.

I agree with skioutty. In my experience Elka shocks are the best available.

I have 3 full sets (12 shocks) of fox Podiums and I am probably goig to scrap them all. they just don't hold up between rebuilds.

i have Elka, Fox, Stadium, OEM, Kyb, HPG, and some other off-brand............. Elka hold up the longest by far.

Wait................

I forgot something............

There is an "upgraded" OEM shock available.

They are throw-aways, (non-rebuildable) but they are a reasonable upgrade from standard OEM and not a lot of money.

If you are interested I could find out where you can buy a set.
