Elka stage 3 installed.

Got a full set installed on Thursday on my 2019 grizzly. Also removed sway bar. Going to mountains where its very rough and rocky.
First test ride around home and wow what a change. The thing feels great and glides through any bumps I can find. Feels like a new machine and was worth the investment.

Id read some skeptical reviews but so far Id say this upgrade was awesome.

It did turn out really good. I’m jealous. I’d love to get some stage 3’s.

I have Stage 4's with the rear sway bar still connected, been super happy with the shocks so far.

Did you disconnected the sway bar to get better articulation?
Guess I haven't thought about disconnecting mine yet.

Ya it really helps on rough ground to keep the back end from kicking so bad. Done it on every atv and ranger that we’ve taken to the mountains.

Nope I never have. I don’t do much other than checking fields or ride around the yard so never felt like it was needed.

Ya and upgrading to blue was around a couple hundred bucks only after selling the white ones. Good money spent !
