    2002 Santa Cruz Superlight rear shock

    I am looking to refurb my old Superlight and need a replacement shock. I know I need a 200x51 (7.875x2.0), which I can find plenty of. The question I have is what else is needed to mount the shock? I know it depends on manufacturer, but if I go Fox or Rock Shox are they links or part numbers you can help me with by posting here?

    You'll also need some shock mounting hardware. Not all brands of shocks have the same size eyelets, so it's generally best to purchase the same brand hardware as your shock unless you know the hardware you're buying is made for the same eyelet size as your shock.

    Here are the shock hardware specs for your frame according to Santa Cruz's bike archive:

    Mounting Bushing Width Front: 22mm
    Mounting Bolt Diameter Front: 8mm

    Mounting Bushing Width Rear: 41mm
    Mounting Bolt Diameter Rear: 6mm

    highly recommend RWC needle bearing kit for the lower mount.
    also, manitou mcleod is an awesome shock that easily rivals fox and rockshox best, for less than 200$us shipped from europe.

    had one on my TB2, have one on my TB3. both replaced Fox shocks and are better.
