    That depends on what kind of bike you are going to put it on.

    shock bushings are press fit in the shock's eyelet to decrease friction. shock bushings are 1/2" (12.7mm) for fox shocks regardless on what kind of bike you use them. you might need different mounting hardware (shock bolt and spacers) depending on what bike you ride. a good overview can be found here:

    Are you referring to the DU Bushings or the Reducers......big difference. The reducers allow you to mount the shock to a particular frame whereas the DU Bushing is the pivot bearing that's pressed into the shock eyelet. Fox uses a 1/2" DU Bushing.......

    my shock is currently being Push'd by TF tuned and they didn't know what mounting hardware I would need. The shock is going to go on a custom Quiring frame that I am currently having built up based on a 4" Ventana Swingarm. I think it'll be the same mounting hardware that would go on an El Salt.

    you can measure the size of your mounting hardware like here:





    ok, just figured that you haven't got the frame at hand yet. best way is to ask sherwood then, i guess

    It appears you have learned a bit in the last 16 hours, eh! Now that we know you need reducers lets see.....the upper mount is a custom Ventana two piece reducer which I believe is a 54mm span width. The lower reducer is 21.80mm span width. I hope that helps.
