    Many people here have tried them and as far as i can remember NO ONE has liked them. They seem to be of very low quality and prone to leaking.

    what you can do is get the STRC shock caps and bodies. just change out the shock bodies and caps and you have all new alum. shocks. also you get colors

    Blah, ok, I guess I might just get the big bores then...

    I like the idea of the height adjustability...
    Does any aftermarket company make and adjustable shock worth buying???
    Oh, Also that doesnt cost 100$ a pair...lol
