    Fox or rockshox??

    I have an 09 stinky deluxe and I'm looking for a fork upgrade
    I can't decide between a fox 40 float rc2 or the rockshox boxxer team
    any opinions ? Or other suggestions ?

    I would highly recommend the Manitou Dorado over Fox or Rockshox.

    A cost effective way to get a great fork would be to buy a used, low end one off craigslist either rockshox or fox and buy an Avalance dampener. I can pretty much guarantee it will be as least as good but probably better than the top of the line forks on the market

    So a fox 40 and an avalanche damper ?
    Basically I'm sick and tired of my bomber killing seals leaking oil everywhere and in general just sucking haha

    Yep. It's a good combo and if you pick up the fork for cheap you really can't beat it!

    Uhhh, fox 40 seals are going to leak a lot more than any modern marzocchi fork.

    I have two fox forks with the new SKF seals and they do not leak at all. They are very good seals.

    I bought a 2014 fork in the 1st months of 2014 & it started leaking with in 2 wks, sent bk to Fox, they said I had "microscopic scratches in the kashima" and that was the reason the seals leaked AND the reason they charged me $235. So kashima...ppfffft. ALL of my Zocchi forks had yrs on them before they leaked.
