Getting Suspension Mods and Axle.. Pricing, Set Up Suggestions?

Hey all! I'm new to the forum. Used it here and there for ideas, but now I'm investing more time And Money into my '05 660 and I'm looking for some solid advice from the experts in here.
I do trail riding mostly with some jumps here and there (working on progressing that) and right now I'm looking to widen a bit and upgrade the shocks.
Just called ATV Galaxy about some Lonestar +2 long travel A-arms, Elka Stage 3 (maybe 4 for rebound) shocks, and an Axcalibar adj. Axle.
Havent pulled the trigger yet, but pricing was right around $2k (with included brake lines).
You guys think this is the best deal I can get for this set up?
Are there some other Manf.'s or Dealers I should look at?
Thanks for your help!

Thanks guys, I appreciate the help!
So I may have jumped the gun a bit, but I was waiting on a call back from management at ATV Galaxy earlier. Anyway, I got a pretty good deal I thought so I got it.
+2 Lonestar long travel arms, Elka stage 3 shocks all around (with rebound option and covers added for fronts), lines with clamps, and Axcalibar adj. axle. All totalled $2189. A few days ago I thought ok, just getting +2 sport A-arms and call it a day.. Hahaha! Nope. It's a habit of mine with anything I get with a motor in it.
It's ok, just sold my fairly stock '03 660 for almost the same amount to the dollar at $2200, so it went right back into my '05.
Although my carb rebuild and re-jetting kit, coolant lines, Renthal -1 front sprocket, race bars, grips and billet throttle blade, cost a bit more. Gonna be a nasty ass quad after though Lol

You can save a fair amount of money going with Jogaca. I have fronts and rear shock on order all tailored to me for half the price of elkas. Should be getting them within a week or 2. These are what i am getting.

Jogaca, jogaca, jogaca, ok now, welcome to the forum, but contact him, I was apprehensive until we spoke for 5 minutes, he will tell you what he thinks is best even if it's not from him, and he'll build your shocks for your size and riding terrain/style. You won't get more for your buck.

Ryan Lee, those look Legit!
Yeah, like I said I probably jumped the gun a little and already made the purchase, but I know I got some good parts coming, abeit for more than I may have needed to spend. Live and learn right? Lol
Elka is building them to my size and riding style, but I'll have to see if Jogaca has any input on what he could add.

Anyone got pics of their suspension/drivetrain set ups?

here are a few more pics that Jogaca sent me of some of his other builds. I sure he can work his magic on the suspension you are getting, ya know making it just right for you. Me I am probably going to go with either Yfz 450 shocks by Jogaca or works thripple rate with remoter rezzies.

Love the colors on all these. I know it's just aesthetics, but the right colors set the whole thing off looking at it. Not really a fan of the Elka's red towers and black springs with my blue fairings. Would rather have something that would stand out like these with a bright yellow (to match my hoses), or even Kawi green (big fan of Kawi And Yamaha here. Also ride ZX10R's and an R1.)
So I sent out a PM to jogaca and am awaiting reply now.
