Ishock VRS Walker evans

hey guys need and opinion... i am looking at a set of ishock f-18 or a set of walker evans. first for a upgrade for my oem... adventually i am going to get a mid travel kit. preferb ishock . since you get 13 inches of travel out of it vs the lone star 10.

with that being said. what is the better shock big diffrences i went to waler evans web page and cant see allot of details, such as adjustments, high spee low speed, rebound compression.

if the alkers are allot better than the ishock, i will go wih the lone star set up. but travel is not as long?

type of riding i mostly do is fast desert trails, mountain trail risign adn the dunes 3-4 times a year. so i need a good all around shock.

Thanks for the help

The F18's have commpression & rebound adjustments, not a bad shock at all.
The Walker Evans have compression adj. only. Very good shock, less money.
Elka's, great shock, have no adj. all the way to, high & low speed com. & rebound. more money.
I can get all of the above.

Thanks, Pauly.

You cant go wrong with the WERS or the IShocks... It is a coin toss...

But to be honest I would choose AFCO's over both of them. They are all equal in performance but Steve over at Makin Track (AFCO's) has great customer serivce and he will take good care of you.

I just picked up a set of WE with the adjustable reservoir 18" for $650.00 used but look like new. What do you guys think of the deal. Good, great ok?
