Diddo on that. Unless you are a good racer, don't worry about the 3-way. Get the 2 way one and you will be more than happy. Just make sure that you get the right spring.Big Daddy said:the short of it is yes there's a difference. Not having experienced an Elka, WP i can't comment on their quality bit i have used both Ohlins & Penske and overall i've had my best experience with Penske.
