PRODUCT OVERVIEW:

Improved Rear-End Handling and Control with Compression Fine-Tuning
The factory rear shocks on your Tacoma get the job done, but just barely. If you plan on taking your aggressive Tacoma build off-road or just want improved handling and control on the street, then the Elka 2.5 DC Remote Reservoir Rear Shock Kit is the upgrade you want for your truck. Elka has created incredible ATV and Quad aftermarket coilovers and shocks for years, and now you can gain the result of those years of innovation for use on your Tacoma. The Elka rear shocks improve the handling and stability or your Tacoma's rear-end, eliminating jounce and bounce over the roughest roads while absorbing violent impacts from the most uneven terrain. Elka's shocks drop right into place of your Tacoma's stock rear shocks in no time, providing outstanding rear-end performance without breaking the bank.

The Elka 2.5 DC Remote Reservoir Rear Shocks feature a massive 2.5" (56mm) hard-anodized aluminum body that helps keep the shocks cool, even on the roughest terrain. An internal floating piston design prevents cavitation and fading while the heavy-duty 3/4" (19mm) induction-hardened shaft can withstand the most abusive off-road adventures. The remote reservoir features a low-friction floating piston which provides additional cooling during high-stress applications and features fine-tuning of the compression to suit any application. The shocks direct, bolt-on replacements for the stock shocks, allowing installation to be done in minutes.

HIGH-FLOW DUAL COMPRESSION ADJUSTMENT OVERVIEW:
Elka Suspension’s Dual High- & Low-Speed Compression adjustment is an internal cartridge with two distinct circuits that control the hydraulic resistance for both highvelocity and low-velocity oil displacement. This enables very advanced fine-tuning for different types of impacts that would otherwise require the driver to make a compromise between a more comfortable softer suspension and a high-performance harder suspension.

LOW-SPEED COMPRESSION ADJUSTMENT (LSC):
The low-speed compression adjustment controls low-velocity compression damping (when the shock is compressing slowly). This technology allows the driver to fine-tune the firmness of the suspension to make it firm of soft depending on the driver’s needs according to terrain conditions or for different types of driving.
The easy to use red twisting knob will make the suspension harder when turned clockwise and will make the suspension softer when turned counter-clockwise.

EXAMPLES OF SITUATIONS THAT AFFECT THE LOW-SPEED COMPRESSION

  • Front-end diving when cornering and braking
  • Rear-end squatting under hard acceleration
  • Driving over whoops at moderate speed
  • Undulations and elevation changes in the terrain

HIGH-SPEED COMPRESSION ADJUSTMENT (HSC):
The high-speed compression adjustment controls high-velocity compression damping (when the shock is compressing quickly). This technology allows the driver to fine-tune the resistance of the suspension to impacts, allowing to control bottoming-out protection and absorption of vibrations.
The easy to use black twisting knob will make the suspension harder when turned clockwise and will make the suspension softer when turned counterclockwise.

EXAMPLES OF SITUATIONS THAT AFFECT THE LOW-SPEED COMPRESSION

  • Landing from jumps
  • Harsh or sudden square-edged impacts
  • Driving at high-speed over whoops
  • Vibration when driving at very high speed over washboard or when driving over choppy terrain and tire tracks
