Revolt Elka shocks - What Spring rates do you run?

Just put stage 5 Elka shocks on my revolt and they sure seem stiff. My Front springs are 8" 150lb and 14"120lb Rear 12" 110 and 14" 130lb as they came from Elka setup for a 220" driver With suggested rebound and compression dampening. What are you guys running?

Mine was the same way. I contacted Elka and they sent me out new springs and I think I only paid shipping. I will look and see if I can find any spring rates.

Re: Revolt Elka shocks - What Spring rates do you run?

Found my notes
My Spring numbers, note the top springs are Eibach not Elka
Front top Eibach 0800.250.0150
Front Bottom Elka B2.2x305
Rear top eibach 1200.250.0110
Rear bottom Elka B2.7x356
Note that my car had a 3 cylinder Yamaha Nitro motor in it, so it may have been heavier.
Here is the contact I had at Elka

Cool, thanks. I plan on doing a 670 rotax this winter, but it would be lighter than the stock motor. Either way your specs should help. I will try contacting Elka. I was thinking about lowering the ride height 3"-4" to see if I can get the center of gravity down a bit. I have been riding Honda Pilots for years and I can drive so much more aggressively in my Pilot compared to the Revolt, because it has that low CG. We only ride dunes anyway so I dont ever use all that suspension travel. Just a thought. I will keep everyone updated. Thanks again.

Re: Revolt Elka shocks - What Spring rates do you run?

I am running Fox Coil overs with reservoirs on the rear of mine. bottom is 14" 150# and I had to go to a 10" 100# to get the sag to 35%.

On the rear I had to "trim" the body panel to avoid the upper spring from hitting. I've just started doing the front. Looks like I will need to redo the upper A-arm, move the bottom shock mount inward or put a limiting strap on t and lose 10% of droop travel. Doubt I would ever notice the loss of travel in my riding conditions though.

Curious to what you did up front?

You will definitely have to make new upper a arms. I have one traced out on paper I could send you and you could copy it. That's what I did
