Hi there,

I ride an '07 coiler and bottom out the fox Van R shock often and really want to replace it with something stronger. I weigh between 185-190lbs and ride pretty hard (jumps,drops,etc).

I was wondering what the best shock would be to replace the old Van R? the problem is the frame only allows for a 6" rear travel, so is a DHX5.0 out of the question? If so, whats my next best option?

thanx

Any of the DHX shocks will be a good setup, the more adjustment the better to fine tune the ride. For a 07 Coilair or Coiler you want one with a 7.875" eye to eye and a 2.25" stroke. A coil version will most likely be more scarce than the air version.

i bought dhx 5.0 with an eye to eye 200mm.I was told it should fit?! I didn't install the shock yet,but it seems that it really should fit, because the lenght of the whole shock compared to vanilla R (which was original installed) is the same.Now i came acrooos this info that 7.875 ete fits.
So would it fit or should I return the shock right away??
