BEWARE of those ebay shocks!!!
Many negative reports.

Elka told me they made a fat set of front shocks, but no rear. I send customers to them and they say they make NO SHOCKS for a LT80...Go figure..:confused:

Most all get works.

I think it's 10 1/4 but I'll have to measure tomorrow.

Yea, PEP's are good. Good luck getting a set in a reasonable amount of time.:( I had a set on order for a year. I finally seen Wayne at a race and told him I didn't want any.

I bought a set. The problem is they are 1.5 inches longer than stock and that moves the bottom a-arm down by that much, thus giving you about 3 degrees of positive camber (blaaaaa). So I made some "camber compensators" that adjust the wheels back straight and add +5 total front end width. By spreading the front end out by that much it softens the front end up real nice too.

Ill try and get some pics of the parts that I made up here in the next couple of day for those of you that are interested in them.
