How much better is Fox Racing Shocks than Suntour? Considering getting a hardtail with suntour front shocks; but Im unsure. Waiting on my other thread about picking a new bike amongst 5 choices before I make a selection.

I don't have experience with the high end Suntour forks but between Fox and the Suntour forks that come on sub $2k bikes there's a big difference.

Between my Suntour Auron and Fox 34 Performance, both in 140mm. Both are 2016 models.

After about 7 months, Fox suppleness outlasts Suntour, especially low speed sensitivity. The Auron has more adjustments yet no matter how I adjusted it to make it comply to low speed bumps, it feels sticky. Since then, I'd replace Auron's cartridge and it feels normal again but I keep it as a spare.
Their unique lever and hollow crown makes the fork feels lighter, low/high speed compression adjustments are a plus but Fox 34 Perfromance 3Pos makes up for less knob fiddles.
