    Well, I have been running my Vengeance HLR DLA (so air spring) for about 6 weeks now. I only had good things to say about it until 3 weeks ago when the fork sank down 20mm into its travel(if that makes sense). Exposed stancions were only 150mm long instead of the usual 170mm. I plugged my fork pump to see if the air spring had lost pressure but it was the opposite. It was at 90 psi instead of the 75 psi it was set at. Deflated completely the air spring and pumped it back to 75 psi but travel remained at 150mm.

    I sent it back to the canadian service center who confirmed that there was a faulty seal somewhere in the dla air spring unit. Oil went from one chamber to the negative chamber which caused the lost of travel. Apparently the problem is known to X-fusion as it was not the only fork they had to repair. Got the fork in a few days so I was pretty happy about turn over time.

    Sad thing is that the lost of travel happened again during the first ride after it came back. The fork is back at the service center and I'm currently waiting for an update on the situation.

    Its hard for me at this time to recommand going the Vengeance DLA. I loved the fork when it was properly working and I hope they will have a long lasting fix for that issue. Until they do, I would suggest going for the coil or the basic air spring.

    thanks for the reply nightnerd. id most likely steer clear of the travel adjuster version. ive never had luck with ANY fork with travel adjust. most likely would go with the air hlr. basically its between the vengeance air hlr and the new float 36 rc2....may just go with new fox. i hear fox is using new seals in their forks and they are working out quite nicely

    thanks again, and keep the input coming!

    I was running the Vengeance RC on my 2008 Mojo without any issues for the past year or so. I bought it when they first came out, so probably have one of the first batch to hit the market. Have had no problems. I have since moved the fork over to my new bike, and it is still working fantastic from my experience.

    I have the HLR Coil 170 on my HD and totally happy with it.
    This shock has it all stiff/plush and very easy to dial in.

    I'll be posting a long review of the HLR coil in the Shocks forum soon. I converted mine to u-turn with store bought hardware bits. So far it's much better in stiffness and damping action than the Lyrik u-turn it replaced on my HD. If the u-turn conversion hold up in the long, run I'll be completely satisfied.

    Here's a link to a post linking my review in the Shocks-Suspension forum:
