    Followed you back! :cheers:

    But they've been great so far, not a single issue and the ride is really smooth. Honestly, if there was one thing I would have done differently, it would be to pass the adjustable upgrade on the shocks. I've kept it at the default setting this whole time without needing or wanting to make the ride quality stiffer or softer. If I had to do this all over again, I'd go with the non adjustable option and save a couple hundred for other upgrades. If you go with Elkas, you'll be very happy.

    Thanks for the feedback, I was looking at non-adjustable initially, but started seeing advantages for my daily driving vs. beach and mountain trail needs.

    Then I started seeing additional adjustability on lines like Dobinsons MMR Adjustables where you have high and low compression controls, but also rebound control. Having never gone beyond stock suspension on every vehicle I have owned...but living down a pretty rough rutted gravel road the last few years has changed my perspective.

    You'll notice a massive difference in comfort as soon as you make the switch, I've held coffee in my hand going 30+ over some dips and bumps without a flinch haha. But being a large purchase, I suppose the extra few hundred won't be a bad investment, especially if you wanna make the ride quality a lot softer. Id let you take my truck out for a spin if you lived near me lol, but believe me, the Elkas are worth every penny.
