How is it? 160mm in the front? Angleset?
Fork is 160 with 42 offset (the crown is from my lyrik MY 2016) so the geometry is almost the same as before, i think the head angle slackened 0,3 or something (compared with the previous set up lyrik 180mm).
I didn't make a proper test yet, i just rode a little trail and i can't really say anything.

I don't think the sanction is compatible with coil, it is very slightly progressive. You need air to tune progressivity. I had an X2 and worked perfectly, I had a light tune and 2 spacers, it was perfect with 25 pct sag.

The suspension have a little progession at the end of the travel. It is not ideal if you ride bike parks but on natural trails is perfect it makes the bike ride like a real DH. I'm waiting the new Cane creek progressive Coil to get the best of both worlds!

Been running mine with a coil since I built it
Runs fine, though I run my spring rates very linear .

Ran mine with MRP Raze for two years. Was very good...

Has anyone fitted a Vivid Air?
Ordered one but then realized how tight the spacing is going to be

Float X2 isn't any bigger than a vivid air, you should be fine just be mindful around the dropper cable if you're running one.

Yes! no problem! i just re-routed the dropper cable on the outer part of the frame to avoid friction with the shock that could damage it!

An angleset does not solve the problem of the BB being too high. Try a normal 180mm fork with two 5mm off-set bushings for the shock. It lowers the BB height to something around 342mm(depending on the volume tires) and it slacks the HA with something around 1-1.5 degrees. The app on the phone is telling me most of the times 63 and some times 64 degrees. I reckon is somewhere between 63.5 and 64. Having a slacker HA is one thing..but, the big diff is in the lower BB height. The bike is soooo much more planted, it feels more stable and it has increased the speed with wich I take corners. I deff. reco going on the off-set bushings route. They are also very cheap..I think 12 punds/euros for 1 pcs.
Cheers.
