Default Walker Needles

Curious if anyone has any experience with Walker Evans needle shocks. I'm looking at the 2"/2.5" setup for the xp...plan on doing some racing

We have been running this setup on one of our race XP's and are VERY pleased with the performance. Locked down a 2nd place finish in the production 1000 class at WORCS this past weekend with these same shocks. Awesome setup! We are also an authorized Walker Evans dealer should you need any help.

Component wise the shafts, pistons, valving and springs are different than the oem set. They handle complety different than the stock set up, more compliant on the small stuff yet more bottoming resistanance

It is possible to rework and convert your stock set, you can call me at the shop and we can talk details and pricing.
