    Rear Shock for 575

    i am thinking about selling my 575 or upgrading the rear shock ( i know extreme ends of the spectrum)....anyhow i have loved my bike, its a 04 575 with the 5 element and i kept waiting for it to break to replace it and it simply just hasn't...but am i missing out??

    i ride pretty aggressively and love technical stuff...what do you all suggest...i only weigh 150 or so...and have a AM-1 up front....thanks for the advice...

    if i were to sell it, what should i get??

    I can't speak rave reviews for the RP3, seeing as how mine died one month after I bought it, it's been two weeks and no word from Fox. But maybe the RP23 is better? I'm about ready to buy a spare.
    What, me hurry?

    that sucks... its amazing sometimes its just luck of the draw i guess....no one ever says anything good about the 5th element yet mine has put up with my abuse for 2 years..i feel pretty fortunate.....

    If i were in your situation, I would get a custom done rp23 that they sell at PUSH, but then again a new frame would be nice too.

    Have to agree with you. That said, if your shock is still working I wouldnt replace unless I had alot of extra money laying around
