In all honesty I'm not sure how it perform. Any shock other than the stockers are going to give you VAST improvement. One thing I do like, is the fact it comes complete with everything you're going to need to install the mod. Just like anything else, it all depends on how much you want to spend. In my case, if I wanted to put +1 arms on my raptor, I'd have to get my shocks rebuilt into long travels and be revalved again for the longer stroke the extended arm would give me. Hind sight being 20/20 I really should have just waited to get my arms before I had my elks rebuilt. Good luck bro!
