Installed my suspension right out of the box, went 5 clicks harder in the high compression to make the shocks a bit stiffer because I was bottoming out on the hard packed tracks. Haven't had to touch my suspension like in 4 rides, unlike the fox I probably would have had to put air every single time. Best purchase I've made


Awesome, I'm glad your satisfied!

Couple of questions...
Are Walsh MX arms longer than Houser MX arms?
Do they both have the same ground clearance?

I need to decide soon, I don't ride MX, just trails, but I want to keep the quad MX or stock width. I don't want XC width.

Budget is no concern, so I can go Walsh if that's my best choice.

Go Walsh or Lonestar...I think they look better!!

95% of the GNCC racers use Lonestar...I'm pretty sure Lonestar and Walsh have the same bottom a arm shape. The Housers bow up a little....The problem with this is if you run floats the EVOL chamber isn't protected as well as the Lonestar or Walsh arms.

Yeah I was going to order some rath nerfs from immortal and he said about a 3 week wait on those to be built. I guess this is not the time to be ordering things. I just hope I get them ordered in time for my trip spring break.

In my experience three weeks for Rath nerfs is the standard turn around time all year long.

They're in production according to Nate@Walsh. I'm looking forward to your review.

I personally think it's hard to go wrong with any of the top three setups. I believe Houser, LSR, and Walsh make great stuff.
