    Will this be a useful upgrade in sus fork? What tools do I need?

    I have a Giant Yukon. the front sus on the fork is klanking as I come off of a jump(when getting air). I want to replace it.

    A. What tools do I need?

    B. I was looking at a RockShox dart 3, but I don't think it is what I want, ...any suggestions?

    Replacing the cables and housing on your brakes/shifters feels like getting a new bike for $40.

    What fork do you have now? What have you done to look into why it's "klanking"? What is your budget for a new fork? Will you use it to jump a lot?

    Sorry,
    Not much jumping. Suntor(sp?) fork currently. My budget is dependent on what I need. I want lock out options, and non-spring shocks. I would like to stay under $300 and don't mind buying slightly used. I could probably swing $400 if I really need to.

    Thanks for the link, I can get those tools pretty easy.

    i recently got a magura menja from bikeman(.com) for 370

    light, stiff, air, adjustable and seems to compete well with the mid-level rockshoxs (reba). i like mine so far.

    dart 3 has no air, just a coil spring.
