I am thinking of getting an X5 in the 6" travel mode, but wonder if it will accommodate a Fox Vanilla R coil shock. The DHX Air weighs almost as much as this shock so, I thought, shoot just go coil then. The Vanilla is simple too, just the way I like things. I dont need all those dials and adjustments.

.................... FoShizzle put a PUSHed Vanilla RC on his late 04 X5 when it was setup for 6" travel and seemed to really like the shock ! He let me know about PUSH having a few left ( this was quite awhile ago ) and I bought one with mods for my weight for the Bruja and really like it ! If you can find one with 7.785" i to i length and 2.25" stroke it should work just fine ! TIG.
