I've got an 03 heckler with a 2" stroke 5th, I want to go to a 2.25" stroke. Just looking for ideas on a new shock, I'm at about 230-240 with gear.

I went with the DHX-Air and it was a serious improvement over the 5th coil. Very plush over the hard edge brakings bumps.

This is what i'm going with. At your hefty size, it might be worth a look. www.avalanchedownhillracing.com.

Yeah, I'm a big air shock fan, but Rideon's right. At your weight you'd probably be better served by a good coil. Just about any good one would do you right...DHX coil, 5th E coil, Manitou 6-Way, etc. I lean more toward piggyback shocks, just because of the expanded tuneability that most of them give you for compression and bottomout.
Just put an 06 DHX Coil on my 04 Heckler
AND FRICKING LOVE IT.
