Thumb Damn Straight!

I agree 100%!
ESA is not even close to a proper fully adjustable shock. Period.

Thumb Just Installed

I had the Trail 3's and replaced them with the 4's.

I'm a very happy camper. YMMV

Thumb Replaced ESA on GS and GSA

It's not only that ESA is automated mediocrity, the ESA shocks are of a poor qualty to start with when compared to good shocks. It's a double whammy.

Thumb Herman at Wings and Wheels in Edgewater, Florida

I put a set of Wilber's on Sunday at Herman's and he is great to work with.

The standard GS does have some advantages- it is a little bit more nimble.

Thumb 2008 ESA to Non ESA
