Rebound damping will be nice. Hauling ass over "whoops" gets real sketchy in a hurry without it I've noticed haha.
I first put on snowmobile shocks I just matched up at our local salvage yard, loved them, I blew one out so I figured I’d try Bronko’s, gave my buddy my snowmobile shocks (mistake) and he had them rebuilt and now couldn’t be happier!! I put on the Broncos thinking they would be a good ride after reading many reviews. I was wrong cuz they rode like sh-t !!!! Now they sit in corner of garage, anyways I broke down and bought the Stage3. They do ride a heck of a lot better than stock and the Broncos but I’d say the snowmobile shocks I had rode just as good. Are the stage3’s worth the money? My honest opinion is they are a good ride and a must have but not worth what I paid for them.
No but next time I see my buddy I’ll find out, if I ever do it again like update my wheeler I’m gonna just match the shocks from wheeler to any decent pair of sled shocks, it doesn’t have to be a perfect match, and from salvage yard you might spend at very most a couple hundred, sure as hell beats 1300 to 1400. I only spent 100 and no kidding they rode just as good if not better than the stage3 !!!!!!!!Happen to remember what kind of sled it was you took them out of? I know on my old YFZ I used a set of Polaris 440 float shocks and had them rebuilt and had that quad super fun to beat on.
You will like them. Ran Stage 2's for years with remote reservoirs. Will be my next upgrade for my XP 1000 sportsmanI ordered a complete set of Elka stage 3s threw an Ontario vender. Hope I don’t regret this!!!!....
Alot of my trails are terribly rough and my front shocks ride harsh as hell, even with the spring preload set to minimum. The rears are not as bad..
So that the story, I got fed up and I took the Elka plunge. Wish me luck!
Please keep us posted, sure would be nice to find alternatives to $ 1500 shocks .Planning on taking mine off this weekend for a measurement, I got a buddy who owns a snowmobile parts place so I’ll have him find me something in the length I need. Test out a few options but I’m pretty sure I can find a set of SkiDoo piggy backs for the fronts just need to figure out the rear
This is interesting and worthy of it own thread.Planning on taking mine off this weekend for a measurement, I got a buddy who owns a snowmobile parts place so I’ll have him find me something in the length I need.
