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.
I am lost, I'm no guide
Just put an 06 DHX Coil on my 04 Heckler
AND FRICKING LOVE IT.
