    The article on adding "long travel" shocks in on this K5 site, in the Technical section. Scroll to the end of the article, and I think they summarize all the parts needed complete with part #'s.

    That corner is called Valley Suprise. Everynow and then some locals would accually paint valley suprise on that center devider. How they did it I don't know but I would emagin it would have to be in the middle of the night or something. I was told it got that nick name cuz allot of folks comming from SJose and the 'Valley' would not know how sharp that corner is and WIPEOUT!!
