hey guys i need ur help with something..i got my engine running good and everything else on my predator seems pretty race-ready except for the suspension..ive already busted the rear suspension once racing mx and now everytime i am racing i have less confidence hitting jumps and flying through the whoops cuz the suspension doesnt handle it..i set the rear shock at setting 8 and tightetned it so its really stiff but it still doesnt seem to help all that much for some off the bigger jumps and whoop sections...I guess what im getting at is what suspension setups are you guys running for your Predator and was there a big difference noticed wiht the new suspension..I rcae on some pretty big MX trcaks and also do alot of XC racing so i want to be able to adjust the suspesion easily for what type of rcaing im doing..Ive been looking at custom axis, elka's, walker evans, and the rath racing revalving..Which setup do you htink is the best for its price and where can i get the suspension..i havent found anywhere to look at the custom axis for a predator but heard some guys talking about it..Will rath rcaing's revalving be good enough in rough rcaing situations or will i have to go elka's or custom axis for more satisfaction?also will any of these set-ups mess up the PRO steering system?if you guys could tell me any info you know about this subject that would be great THANKS

I had my shocks revalved and resprung by rath and they are great, wayne at pep sends rath the correct valving and springs for your weight and riding style.
(pep makes some of the best shocks available for quads) I would rate them right with the axis and elka's, but quite a bit cheaper, stay away from the walker evans, they are over priced and do not compare. your pro steering will not be affected, however as with the stock shocks, I would recommend a quality steering stabilizer, seems that the pro steering sends a little feedback through the bars, but aftermarket shocks will not worsen it. I paid $965.50 for all 3 of my shocks to get done, including shipping. I waited a LONG time, but it was well worth it.

You just need to get the stock ones revalved for your weight and riding style. Contact PEP, They build gret shocks. Apparently their ZPS stuff fits inside the fox bodies. They will set it up for you also. It's alot cheaper than buying all new shocks. I had a problem bottoming mine pretty hard racing at Hangtown, luckily I didn't break anything.

Well if you were a poor boy like me. You could cut your rear spring down to stiffen it up. But I see with your mods, new revalveing and spring would be better. Also with your rear shock set at 8 & your spring all the way up. You must be getting some big air.
