    coil to air?

    hey I have a 03 xlt 1.0. I am thinking of upgrading to a air shock. who has done it and what type did you use? The main reason is because my eyelet/bushing on the link end have become worn out and there is alot of play there. Also has any one had these parts replaced and what did they cost? I am just trying to decide between the cost of new shock or fix the old one. if it is going to cost alot to fix the old one I think that I might be better off to get a new one, mybe with stable platform.
    It's go time

    Well, replacing a bushing on a shock is simple and cheap...even if you let a shop do it. Its really not a reason to replace your shock. Also, if you want maximum performance, send that Fox Vanilla into PUSH industries and get it custom tuned for your bike, riding style, and weight.
