    2011 S/C Juliana Rear shock upgrade

    Hey guys-
    Tried searching Santa Cruz forum for the 2011 Juliana specs. I want to upgrade the rear shock to the Fox CTD, but can't find the specs for the R/L that is currently on it. Any help would be appreciated!

    What size shock does the Juli use?

    Extra small and small Julianas use a 6.5" x 1.5" (165x38mm)
    For medium size frames: 7.875"x 2" (200x50mm)
    The shock mounting hardware for all frame sizes is 22mm wide with an 8mm through hole.

    Thanks for the help Norm...Now I just don't know what fox ctd to get. My wife doesn't ride hard (at all) so I don't know if the ctd with the remote valve will be beneficial. Thinking about the plain CTD. Any thoughts?

    Plain CTD will be fine unless your wife really wants to use the adjustments frequently and can't take her hands off the bars or stop the bike to do so.
    Do you think your wife will use the adjustments, or is she looking for "set and forget".
    Most people get good results leaving the CTD shocks in Trail mode.
    The Factory series shocks provide additional low speed compression adjustability in Trail mode.
    Main thing is to get the shock's base tune set to the rider, bike, and riding style.
    You have options with base compression and rebound tunes and boost valve settings on the CTD series.
