I like how he's goin with the stock suspension, but why is he goin with stock shocks and Walsh a arms?? You can only add .5 inch to each side, and if he did that im sure they would revalve his suspension for it. I would have rather seen him use stock a arms with aftermarket shocks. Actually, i would have really liked to see a completely stock suspension. I bet he's being paid to run those shocks just so the public see's they are good. I dunno just confused about that set up.

Yeah they are stickers man. I think walsh had something to do with the a-arm engineering. But look at them, they are stock.

i never even thought of them just being stickers...i didnt look close enough and compare them to a stock pic. But i think thats cool as hell if they are stock. Im still amazed that he is going to be racing this thing stock. I really hope he does good.

Walsh is building the arms for the 450. I have an inside source that has told me this numerous times. He built several prototypes and finally satisfied JJ and Gust. He will be using stock equipment but.......Noleen is still gonna go through and re-valve his shocks. It's still up in the air about the rear suspension though.....the rear shock is giving him a little bit of trouble...they're having issues with trapped air in the shock.

The a-arms are stock you can tell by the pictures. He is just sponsored by Walsh and might be using a walsh steering stem or something

i was just reading through the march 06 dirtwheels and they had walsh arms and swinger listed for duggy's and jeremy's quads with fox front shocks and the stock rear.they get big bucks from sponsors to run their product plus they need the adjustability of the walsh arms.im gonna give the stockers a try its hard to justify an 1100 dollar set of arms for +3/4''

i doubt those are stock a-arms becouse he wouldn't be able to make camber and caster adjustments if they were .
This was about dougs dealer show quad, the white one back in october, which did have sttock a arms and shocks 8)

They are running Walsh A-arms and Fox shocks. They said stock it is more then enough to run the pro class, but the wanna have the advantage with the best products avaiable, Fox and Walsh.

The only reason that they moved up to the walsh arms is beacuase of the caster and camber ajustability I dont think so much the 3/4" that there getting.. but thats a small plus too I suppose
