    Turner Stinger/Fox Vanilla Rear

    New poster. HELP!

    Finally found a Stinger frame, but the rear shock (Vanilla) is bent. Fox doesn't make them anymore, though they still make a different Vanilla. Anybody know where I can find one that will work on the Stinger?

    Thanks.

    Unless the shock has a very unusual i2i length/travel, you should be able to find a replacement easily. Vanillas sell cheap on ebay.

    It is unique

    The Stinger had a Fox Vanilla "Pull" shock. Basically the shock was made for that bike alone. I wish I could just grab a different Vanilla, but only the "Pull" design will work. Thanks anyway.

    Stinger uses a pull shock, not a standard Vanilla. K2 razorbacks use the same concept as the Stinger, you can replace it with one of those shocks, at the very least, or call up KHS and ask what shock options are out there.
