    Freeride rear shock?

    What would be a good rear shock for doing freeriding? I don't want a shock that will obsorbe everything that I hit.

    for your stock 2004 Srinky, I would consider getting a used Fox Vanilla RC and have it PUSH'd. Others to consider would be Romic or a Fox DHX.

    Trust me on this one, im a freerider, i use the manitou swinger 4 way coil, it is relativly inexpensive and it can handle 11 ft. drops fine, but then again i am 14 and weigh 124lbs. so to really tell you idd have to know how much you weigh.
    SEnd it.

    No question

    BUY A AVALANCHE. It will be the last shock you buy.
