Can anyone tell me what shock I can substitute for my stock Tough Sock FD-Coil 6.5x1.5 mechanical shock? I'm looking for one that has rebound adjustments and is lighter. I am only interested in a direct bolt up replacement. Thanks Wardie

Maverick DS models are 6.5x1.5"
Warrior DS models are 7.5"x2"

The only significantly lighter shock you could put on the Maverick would be an air shock. I believe Cane Creek has some economical air models. Also check Manitou's Radium platform.

I ended up with a 5th Element shock with a pump brand new off ebay for under 200 bucks. I think this will work well for the back end now I need to turn my attention to the fork. Any suggestions? Single track, no big drops, fire roads and woodsy type stuff maybe some small logs. I was thinking Rock Shox Dart 3. They have them on ebay for $139 including shipping. I weight 240 and thought a spring type fork might be better than air? I am new at this so any advice is welcomed. Wardie

That's the same shock that I put on my Maverick, it works great, you'll be really happy with it. I bought a Manitou Minute 1 fork from Jenson's a couple of months ago, the combination works great. I think I paid around $220.00 for the forks.
