For anyone whos interested, the 2019 Cane Creek DB Air IL - 200x57 Shock does fit on the SX. Its pretty tight non drive side on the air can but I put a 1x12mm oring on the bushing and spacers from the stock Monarch to space it across just a hair. I haven't managed to get out and ride it yet but just from messing about on the street it feels like a massive step up!]

Dude!! Thank you for posting this! I tried to dry fit a dbcoil last year and it was millimeters off. I decided not to pull the trigger because I didn't feel like grinding away bits of my bike.

Right after seeing this the other day, a guy in my city posted one on buy and sell! I pick it up on friday! How has it been on the trail for you through the summer?

Absolutely sick, best shock I've ever owned! Love how adjustable it is and I've got it dialled in just right now too. Only slight annoyance I've found is with dropper cable routing as it tends to rub on the air can pretty badly so I've just covered the thing in gaffer tape. Not sure how the clearance would be without the little o ring spacer I put on the bushing but with it clearance is great if a little tight non drive side. It's probably worth getting a mud guard of some sort to keep all the crap out of the adjusters too. I managed to adapt an RRP fork one to work pretty good. But all in all I'd 100% say make the swap if you can, transformed the rear end of the bike and its an absolute weapon now!

Hi guys, does anyone know if a fox dhx2 with an sls spring would fit the 2015 meta sx?

No coil shock will fit the Meta SX

Best you can do is maybe a Suntour Triair/DVO Topaz (but Not sure 100% if It fits) or a Monarch Plus or CCDB Air Inline

The CC Inline Coil might work? I've got nothing to back that up but it might be worth shooting tf tuned or sprung a message to see if they know how the dimensions of them compare to the air version. Unless you've got your heart set on a coil, going air would give you loads more options though

No way- every spring will touch the chainstays sadly I believe.
Even the Monarch Plus/ CC Inline Air is a very tight fit

The Fox DPX2 should fit then?
