    Elka Suspension group buy!

    https://us.elkasuspension.com/trucks/







    Headstrong Off-Road is proud to announce their new product line: Elka Suspension kits! They have become a direct stocking distributor for Elka Suspension.

    Aside from offering Elkas complete product line, HeadStrong has also worked directly with their engineers on developing an extended travel version of their Tacoma shocks.

    Elka Suspension is a Canadian based company who was established in 2000. Elka is fairly new to the Truck and SUV realm however they are a widely known and highly regarded shock manufacturer in the power sports industry. Their attention to detail, focus on customer satisfaction, and industry leading turnaround times has set a high bar for competing companies.

    To celebrate this partner ships HeadStrong Off-Road is hosting a group buy on Elka Suspension products. Many configurations are in stock however depending on supply and demand there could be additional lead times.

    Features and Benefits of Elka Shocks and Coilovers:
    • Built from CNC-machined and forged aluminum parts, aluminum bodies and premium-quality internal components
    • Elka incorporates the use of an internal rebound coil within the shock that eliminates the harsh top out clunk at full extension
    • Dual Speed Compression Adjusters: ~18 clicks of low-speed compression and ~16 clicks of high-speed compression adjustments
    • Proprietary ultra-low friction, light viscosity semi-synthetic oil blend, ultra-resistant to high operating temperature
    • One year warranty against any manufacturing defects
    • In US authorized service centers
    • Complete step-by-step illustrated installation instructions

There is enough time to make up your mind or find a doctor to sell your kidney or pawn your wife’s jewelry. If you are on the fence to see if it’ll go up to max discount before you jump in, you are HOLDING the group buy back. Don’t be that dude.

    To those who end up on this group buy - I am thinking on Elka for a future purchase in 2020/21. Anyway, there is not much info on the Elka truck suspension so I am just asking that anyone setting up with these consider posting some installation and operational followups to TacomaWorld. I've already read as much as I can here and online but their truck suspension is so new that there just aren't that many users out there yet, despite their reputation with OHVs and snowmobiles. Thanks in advance.

    List updated.

    Guys.

    A few of you PM'd me: "What's the Price?"

    Seriously?

    Price of what? Rears? Fronts? Full kit? Just the left Coilover? A tophat? Year of truck?

    Can we be more specific? I can't help you if you don't provide details.

    now if you ask what the discount is, then I can reply with a % off. If that was your original intention, I replied with that figure.
