    07 diamondback coil ex fshock size?

    Hey guys I've been told this is a waste of money and have read it a bunch of times but I'm curious. What's the size I need to look for in a a front shock that will fit my 07 diamondback coil ex? Also sizes on the rear shock to?

    i ride mostly downhill rocky terrain.
    would like to only spent $100-200 on a front shock and around the same for the rear.

    you will need a 80mm travel fork with a 1 1/8" steerer tube and just measure the eye to eye and the stroke on your rear shock to see what size you need. I have seen Fox rear shocks on this site going for a little over $200 and you can get a RS XC30 for about $150. Neither of these upgrades will make your bike suitable for rocky downhill riding. Hope this helps
