    I have an ELKA 3 way adjustable shock. After 20,000 miles it's loosened a bit. The bumps are rougher and she's not as tight in the corners. I'd like to try adjusting it. Don and I have looked over the manual, but I'm not bold enough to experiment and risk making it worse instead of better! I'm hoping there will be someone at the rally who understands this stuff who can help me by explaining which adjustment I need to make. And if doesn't turn out to be what I want, explain what to do next!

    Any suspension experts attending the rally willing to educate/help an old woman (or try)?

    Thanks!

    It ain't broke yet, but I can fix that!

    Let me improve it until it's inoperative!
