I've got an old GT LTS that the Judy on just quit on the elastomers totally disentegrated. Was looking for something relatively cheap to get back up and running. Any opinions on the following forks I found at reasonable prices. Or any other recomendations would be appreciated. Forks I've found so far. Manitou 06 Axel Elite (80mm) or 05 model that is listed as 100mm, Manitou 04 Skareb Comp, or Marzochi 05 EXR .

Thanks again

At that pricepoint you have only the Zoke EXR (first choice) or a RS Tora 318 Air (best performance-tuneability, but unknown durability).

So far all three forks I have looked at are falling in the $125 to 150 range. Was looking to keep it under 200. for such an old bike. The only problem with the Marz is the steering tube is already cut and I will have to confirm the length also will have to get brake bosses.

Just trying to get back riding since a couple of years of not seriously riding do to kids. There are so many more Fork choices now.

I would always suggest Marzocchi when you are looking for a low end fork. Had way too many issues with low end Manitou's/Rock Shox. I Saw this deal on Nashbar today in their Returned Items section:

I know that it's a little more than you're looking to spend, but it could save you some $$$ in the future.

Here's another deal, this time less than $200:
