Questions guys

I've got a 2017 remedy 9 rsl

I'm wanting to buy a fox float X2 shock second hand off a 2018 pivot firebird its 8.5x2.5 witch I think off the top of my head is about 215x2.3 in mm

Question is can I make this work with my frame?

Any help would me appreciate feel free to DM me

Cheers ????

No it won't. You need a 230x57.5 to keep the travel the same or a 230x60 that will increase the travel to around 157mm.

Has anyone mounted a FLOAT X2 230x60 on a Trek Slash? If so any issues?

The Super Deluxe Coil UItimate comes in trek slash size (230 * 57.5).
Anyone knows what hardware I will need?

The super deluxe coil does not need special hardware, just order the mounting hardware for a 2017 trek slash and you are good to go. One for a nomad will not fit because of the bearings for mounting. If you bunch the bearings out of the eyelet they are too big unless you make custom hardware.

I just bought a super delux coil with lock out for my slash. I need to buy a spring now. I am 174lbs with gear. Looking at a 500lb and 450lb spring to try out. Wondering how much you weigh, what spring you use, and what is your sag.

Any help is appreciated.

Cheers
