We need to know what kind of rider you are and what sled you're on.

Please include your rider and weight class info with your shocks

Rider Class

AA  Professional level: Sno-X Racing ONLY!

Competitive on the Sno-X circuit (Semi-Pro or Pro).  This is not a setup racers would use for their own long distance trail machine.

A   Very aggressive: Stiff trail / Terrain racers

Performance trail rider, can attack moguls at speed without strain.  Will deal with a firm ride to get the benefits from handling, ditch banging and mogul control that this setup has. 

B   Aggressive trail: Lights it up from time to time.

Deals with the bumps in style, but really prefers groomed trails.  Big moguls are fun, but become annoying after 3 minutes.

C   Moderate: Comfort in trail is primary concern

Will go fast from time to time.  Never "hangs off" the sled in the turns.  Wants control, but not at the expense of comfort.  

D   Reserved: Plush Trail.

Never stands up, never jumps, first to point out Moose in the woods.  Never rebuilds shocks.

E   Utility only: Not a high-pressure gas shock application.

A snowmobile is for getting to the ice fishing spot and bringing dinner back.  What's a gas shock?

Weight Class

1  100-125 pounds       4  175-200 pounds       7  250-275 pounds

2  125-150 pounds       5  200-225 pounds       8  275-300 pounds

3  150-175 pounds       6  225-250 pounds       9  over 300 pounds
For example: A dressed 210 pound "Very aggressive trail rider" rider on a Polaris Dragon 800 would request an A-5 setup for his Dragon.

Quad-stage valving  for all other brand shocks          $+30.00 each

A note about the Quad stage valving option:  The LAKO Quad-Stage setups can help to keep the low speed ride quality while avoiding bottoming in high speed - "big bump" situations. We started doing "Tri" and "Quad" stage designs for snowmobiles shocks over 18 years ago. Back in the late 90s, Polaris and Arctic Cat started to use these designs in high-end sleds. As manufacturers, they cannot satisfy everyone with a standard valving stack. A perfectly tuned chassis just for you requires personalized setup and valving.

Valve stack charting              $40.00 per 4        (Pre-Qualified Racers and R&D builds only)

Ester based synthetic fluid     $179.00/gal         Any viscosity from 2-7wt. (Includes/ continental U.S. only special shipping)

Shipping and handling charges for the continental U.S.

$9.80 for one shock

$13.80 for 2 shocks

$15.80 for 3 or 4 shocks.

Remove springs (if possible), Package shocks to protect shafts from shipping damage. Include day and night phone numbers along with email address.  Inspect shafts for signs of damage. Chips, rust, and peeling would require a new shaft.  Most blown and leaking shocks are due to damaged shafts and top bearings.  High pressure gas shocks must have a defect-free surface for the seals to function properly.
