    Ti Mounting hardware for Fox DHX 5.0

    I've been searching around, but can't find any mention on Ti mounting hardware for a Fox DHX 5 air shock. Do they even exist?

    Are you talking about the through bolts, or the reducers?

    Pretty much whatever mounting hardware there is available for mounting a Fox DHX 5.0 air is welcomed. If I could get the bolts, the reducers, the whatever...

    Ti bushings don't exist AFAIK, but why would you want that anyway?

    For the bolts, check for your size here.

    Bling would be the only reason I could see. Al bushings will be lighter then Ti ones.

    I would not run Ti mounting hardware for my shock - Steel is nice and bendy. Ti will just break.

    It's just a little experiment and I want to see just how far I can go with this. Thanks for the help, guys.

    A worthy experiment. You will save a bunch of weight. I have used the same Ti/Al nut shock mounting hardware on my DH bike for the last 2 years. If your suspension is set up properly and you don't ride like a bowling ball you shouldn't have any problems. I got mine here...

    Cliffy may have been getting at it with checking the size, the the mounting bolts are the only thing you will possibly be able to find in Ti, and mounting bolts are frame specific, not shock specific.

    I had seen someone on ebay that had Ti mounting bolts for a V10 and VP Free (different seller than QSBS' link)

    Hey, thanks guys. I'm just going to look into just the bolts for the time being and see what I can get from my own local supplier.
