Elka shocks

Anyone running Elka shocks on their rhino or UTV?? (I have a 2 seat cage and dont know the weight on the rhino if that matters) I have the stage 4 shocks. Basiclly I am curious on the adjustability of the high- and low-speed compression you guys are running and whats recommended. Is there a Elka installer/specialist here in Socal? Thanks in advanced!!

I have them on my 4 seat. I put them about halfway up for the dunes and undo them almost all the way for the desert. I have no complaints .

I'm stayin neutral here, but you DID report kyle's post to admins.
that might work at rf, but not here, not even if johnny asked me to remove

Stiffer for the sand, softer for Desert is the word I have heard.

But original question is a good question, Who are the shock gurus in so cal??
