Bought some mint 2001 Marz Drop Offs for my FSR but the steerer is a little too short, i have sent am email to Windwave for a price to fit a new steerer (believe its around £40-60)
In the mean time i picked up one of these as they were faaaarrr to cheap (£13 plus postage LOL) and the stock Rockshox Deluxe i was running has seen better days.

Will dig out a few pics as i finished installing it yesterday, the bushing holes are 8mm and the 98 FSr uses 6mm bolts, so i popped over to B&Q and picked up a meter of 8mm OD steel tube for £1.83 in the clearance corner
The tube has a 1mm wall thickness, so i cut it down to size, pressed it through the X-Fusion bush spacers and it slotted right into the 98 FSR frame/linkage no trouble at all.
Mine came with a 650lb spring not the 550lb stated, which is fine as the stock Rockshox one i was using was 750lb and i was swapping back and forth between the 750lb one and a spare 650lb spring i salvaged from a BSO
It feels a lot better than the one i removed while blasting around the car park, and the lockout feature is great, pretty sure the adjustment knob is affecting both compression and rebound when fiddled with, but i have not broken in the shox yet so it could just be settling down.
I also used a few nylon washers either side of the bushing spacers, i think it was around a fiver for 25 of them
