Hi everyone just thought I'd ask around on here as it's probably my best bet already scoured fleabay, has anyone got a 165 x 38 rear shock for sale? Preferably 6mm bolt hole DU bushes but that's not important as can be changed anyway,cheers!

If I had a choice probably air but not fussed too much mate, it's for my ellsworth isis the 165 x 38 fits the frame geometry perfect so had some trouble finding one that's compatible and isn't hundreds of £s

Any of these any good to you?

Rock should Ario has remote lockout cable and lever (not pictured) and I have a new in packet lever if you wanted it to be a more standard manually adjustable compression lever.

I've pictured each shaft with a ruler to give you an idea of the stroke length of each.

Nice one thanks for finding these out for me, they all appear to fit apart from the far right stratos I believe? Just harder to find bushes etc, what would be your individual prices for the other three? Cheers.

I can do that. I'll check bushings, do you mean the du things or the spacer washers? I might have some, can't promise though.

The silver DU bushes I think are 12.7mm depending on shock they sit in the shock eyelet first, just wondering if you had any mounting hardware I'll add a pic to show what I mean mate.

They don't always come like that they're the fox packs sometimes they're like this too.

I have these, no inner du bushings though. They fit the current bushing pictured that doesn't have them fitted. The narrower ones would need an o-ring or washer as they tough in the middle and there's a tiny bit of side to side movement, the fatter ones are fine, but not the same size as the ones at the top.

I'd recommend replacing the du bushing in the eyelet as unless the spacers I found aren't the correct ones, they slip in a little easier than I'd like.

You are welcome to any of them, I only have a couple of full suspension bikes and both need proprietary shocks and fittings.
