WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Very nice quality. I have to admit, they are better than I thought they would be. I have not ridden yet, but I did notice that I actually haver a front end sag now when I jump on. It doesn't just sit there looking stupid like it used to. The front sags about 30% like the rear, and travels right up and down in unison. SWEET.

You will like them. Did you get rezzies? Are you going to put a shock on the rear? The shocks lowered my Z about 3'' front and back.

I got the triple rates without rezzies. Don't think I'll need them but can add them later. Black and white springs look sweet.
My front was at 12" before. With these on it's 12 3/4" but when I get on it drops down to about 10. Good stance.

There are several colors, but a few of them are more readily availabe and you won't have to wait months for springs.

I want to know how they hold up after a long period of hard riding. I heard what seperate these from PEP and custom axis is they keep the oil in the shock cooler in the long run than the Works shocks. I know racing for four straight, the stock shock want to bottom out early on, while the custom axis never bottom out. I am curious how the Works would hold up. I hear everyone saying that they take twice as long than stock shock to get overheated, but do get overheated half of the time the custom axis and PEP shocks.

I have never raced for four hours but, my mine never fade on long fast trail rides. I was told that the Axis shocks use a better oil that make the shocks not fade. I think that rezzies and the oil would be more important on the rear shock because it runs hotter. After I stop riding. the front shocks will be cool(works no rezzies). The Axis in the rear will be warm and it has a rezzy. I still say that Works will work great for most people. I have to laugh when I read these post that say works are junk. If you look at their sig, they don't even have aftermarket shocks on their quad. I like the Axis on the rear of my Z. But, I bet I would have been just as happy with a Works. For trail riding, there ain't no way I would give 8-900 dollars for a rear shock. Now If I raced, I would get the best (Axis or PEP).

I got a very good deal on my Axis or I would not have bought it. They run about $800, give or take a little. I am very happy with the HMF slipon!!!! In the trails, it is hard to keep the frontend on the ground.
