I have wanted to try a different shock for many years and when Jimbo rebuilt the front forks for me I new that the rear shock needed to go. I liked the Banshee shock and it's adjustments for my type of riding. First step was to make a shim because the TW spring is to short. I used two shock washers one on the top where it belongs and one on the bottom to keep the aluminum shim centered. It's on the bike and I will give a ride report later.

Nice! I have a banshee shock with the heavier procycle spring. I like it a lot. I'm using a heavy piece of pvc for the spacer...until I can find something else that will work better. Wish I had access to a machine shop!

I have a banshee shock with a full length custom weight racetech spring ($119) that is just the tits. Has loads of travel and custom to my weight and riding habits. Feels like a different bike altogether. The daamper adjusting knob bumps the airbox at full compression, but other than that its just great.

With the Banshee shock the rear is really tall right? How does that change the handling? Is the front sketchy at speed?
