New from Arizona with suspension question..

Hi people, I have an 07 660 with cdi,clutch,intake and exhaust mod's,seats five and will do mid 50's, have off set 14" wheels and Walker Evens shocks with stock a-arms, seems to work fine for trail riding in the woods up north, just started going to the dunes, drove a friends with +6 long travel and mine obviously could not hang in the whoops, my question is will a +3 mid travel kit make a big difference using my W E shocks from my stock set up.By big enough I mean in your opinion will I notice a large difference in the ride with out going to the full race +6 kit.And will I need to have my stock length walker evens re-valved or re-sprung?Thanks so much for your help.

if you do both dunes and trails the +3 is the bestand your shocks will do just fine the way they are

yep lsr mts kit works great i ride desert, trial and sand, i have the elkas and my buddy brian runs the walker evan, a long travel will still handle the large whoops better, but i can rockem at 50. well worth the money esp, since you already have the shocks. and if you still want to upgrade peeps eat up those used mid travels cause hardly anybody ever gets rid of them.

I agree the +3 is a good improvement. however if your into Big Air then get a plus 6/6.5 kit
