Shock Needle Kits

A simple bearing upgrade for better rear suspension performance and longevity.

These nifty needle bearing kits are designed to replace traditional DU bushings (plain bearings) that have been specified in rear shocks for years. This simple upgrade eliminates the friction associated with plain bearings/bushings while maintaining a better linear stroke path and resisting the twisting loads that wear out DUs so quickly. With the advent of trunnion mounts DUs have fallen out of favor, but there are still bikes on the market and in garages all over that can benefit from this inexpensive upgrade. Enduro makes needle kits for dozens of shock and bike specifications for six and eight millimeter mounting bolts covering almost every specification.
