I'm restoring a '03-'05 Racer X and will need a new shock and fork. I posted on the Titus forum, but no replies.

Titus suggested a Fox CTD rear, also said if I went RP23 to use a "leverage" tune of "L" and rebound of "L" or "M" if I wanted a quicker rebounding suspension travel in the rear.

Since going to a newer fork, is a through axle the way to go? I have an old set of Crossmax/9mm wheels.
