    08 Specialized Enduro rear shock question?

    I recently purchased a 08 Enduro Pro SL and noticed that the frame has two mount holes for the rear shock. One is marked low-slack and the other is marked high-stiff. What is the difference? Is it for different terrains?

    thanks

    It changes the BB height and HT angle.

    Low lowers the BB height and slackens the head angle - more of a DH position - I use it for lift served terrain. I tend to bang my pedals alot riding XC in this position

    High raises the BB and makes for a steeper head angle - more of a XC position

    I second this. But have never taken mine out of the low position.

    If it has the E-150 fork, lower (shorten) the stanchions to the minimum mark, along with the shock in the XC position and that bike will feel like an XC racer. Highly NOT recommended.
