    It probably would not be a bad shock, as long as you get one with the proper tune. For another hundy, you could get a great shock, like an X-fusion or a RS Monarch RT3. Again, make sure you get the proper tune for a Fury.

    If you would like to sell your Ario 2.r. I will pay $175 + shipping for it in January.

    I bought a RS Monarch RT3 for the price of a Monarch RL. I received my new shock, yesterday.
