I swapped to Bilsteins, leveled, in the first 5k. Totally different ride. Fox is supposed to be way better ride quality. Don't see how you could claim placebo effect. I'm 90%+ certain he didn't stick to stock height...

Even my buddy said it was much better. It's a whole coilover, not just a shock. It's a much nicer ride from a much higher quality product.

Fix is a nice choice. Wish I'd had the coin to go that route. Billy's with wheels and tires maxed me out. When the Billy's get soft I'll prolly go Fox. Hopefully a while from now though.

Very good product. It probably wasn't a smart purchase at this point in time but I did it anyway and I'm very glad I did.

Now time to get rid of these ****ing Michelin's.

Coilovers are a completely different feel. Definitely not a placebo.

I'm at the mountain doing some biking. Sitting here taking a break watching the other riders hit the jumps. One dude just flew off a jump, over shot it and hit a tree head on. His full face helmet saved him lol.

That's how I broke my jaw except I was on a 4 wheeler and hit the tree doing about 25 mph.
