    AFAIK, you can't get them from Fox any more. Part #'s aren't really relevant either, since it's such a unique product. You simply need to know if you have an early bike (pre 2004) therefore shorter travel and shock body, or a later one, which has more travel and a longer shock body. The later ones also offer fit for the Manitou Swinger 3 way that some upper models came with.

    If you don't know, the easiest ID method is the trunion arms, the frame members that the shock is mounted inside of. Pre '04, they were straight, post, the drop slightly at the mid point, creating a V shape.

    Shock

    Is it a replacement for the Fox, the reason I need this is it's going on a GT LTS 2000, I'm going to modify the trunion on the GT, sorry for being dumb, just been away from bikes for a long time not up to date with the new technoligy

    Thanks David N

    it's the same threaded body with a circular yoke that has the bolts mounting to it and the eyelet at the bottom. as far as I know all Jekyll shock have that type of triunion fitting that wasn't commonly used that's y u can't find them anymore. pm me and I can get u a pic and discuss things next week I'm away from the bikes right now

    If it helps, a friend of mine had his 2001 Jekyll shock rebuilt by Fox earlier this year at a modest cost (I think it was right around $100.00) should you find a used one with issues.

    could someone tell me what the trunion arms are/ ive been a roadie for years and i have been a hardtail rider for a few.. a friend gave me his barely used jekyll..i think its an 04,how do i i.d. it? i think the shock needs to be replaced so i need to learn about about this.

    Oh, a roadie huh? No wonder......







    Seriously now, they are the frame tube sections that hold the trunion, which is the black ring which is threaded onto the shock, and allows it to attach to the frame. They are more or less horizintal to the ground, and are perhaps 10 to 12 inches long. Early ones are straight, later have a downward V drop to them.
