Will this shock fit my bike?
There are generally 3 types of shock styles on the market:
1) Imperial - measured in inches with eyelets on each end
2) Metric - just like imperial with one eyelet on each end but measured in millimeters
3) Trunnion Metric - this is a compact shock with an eyelet on one side and two fixed bolts on the other end
If you're not sure on type and/or size please message us

This listing does not include the coil spring -
You will need a spring that has correct ride sag for your weight and intended application
Two springs are available from Fox:
1) The SLS spring - (orange susperlight) for $130
2) The steel spring (black) for $30
if you need a spring we can do a calculation for optimal setup - please message us

Also, shock eyelets will require mounting hardware (washer kits) to mount properly to your frame
The hardware kits are generally $15/ea and you will need 2 kits per bike for two eyelet shocks
there are dozens of sizes of hardware and you will need correct sizes for your frame -
Sometimes you may be able to use the old hardware off the old shock -
The bolts will come with your frame and are not included with the rear shock or hardware
Please message us if you need new hardware
adding hardware to the order can delay shipping a couple days if we need to get the correct size from the factory

Manufacturer Specs:

Nothing sticks to the ground quite like a coil shock. The DHX2 takes that sensation and buttresses it with sophisticated progressive damping, a massive overall tuning range, and super low-friction internals in order to capitalize on the full race-spec magic carpet experience.
“Factory” says it all – feature-packed and designed to exceed the demands of our Factory-level riders. What we sell is what they race.
