Yes it matters. What bike do you have? I am assuming it has a shock on it now, so pull the shock off if you know how and do a measurement.-Insomnia- said:I was on ride-this.com and i want to buy the fox dhx 5.0 but i dont know what size to buy, does it really matter?
I just tried calling you....skate said:Yes it matters. What bike do you have? I am assuming it has a shock on it now, so pull the shock off if you know how and do a measurement.
to get a rough idea on what size it maybe just measure from center of the bolt, and measure from bolt to bolt. Assuming its on the frame. it should be at most 9 inches.
Now measure the small tan slider rod. the one that slides into the shock when compresses. It should be no more than 3 inches.
Try that if its on the bike. If you pull the shock off you can get a more accurate measure.
If you don't know how or can't measure you shock size, then just go to the specialized website and get the information you need. It's a lot easier and you'll be sure you have the correct size for your frame.-Insomnia- said:i just looked at the dhx 5.0 sizes and they sell a 8.50 X 2.50 and a 8.75 X 2.75
