If you're talking about the 90s Judys then the SLs had Ti bolts all over, Ti bosses and an Ali steerer tube. The XC was all steel bolts and steerer and wasn't a nice yellow colour!

The Travel of the SL was half an inch extra. If I am not mistaken the line was:

Judy XC: 2"
Judy SL: 2 1/2"
Judy DH: 3" (!)

Too bad the original fork boots are a pain to get.

original SLs were also bolted on steerer/crowns. I think the stantions on SLs were supposed to be easton alu. sl crown was deffo more polished.
in all honesty aside from slightly longer travel, a few ti bolts & a different coat of paint SLs were a rip off for £200more retail..
