I know this is an old thread but I bought a pair of these rfy shocks on eBay and I installed them on my 03 Banshee. They're doing ok so far. I've had them on for maybe 10-12 hours of riding. They're very stiff on the front end and in combination with the poorly designed A Arm of the Banshee these shocks put extreme amounts of stress on the castle nut on the lower oem a arm. I'm not super unhappy with my purchase but since I've installed them I have had to replace both of my a arms since the tremendous amount of stress from the shock stripped my ball joint bolt and snapped my cotter pins.

I witnessed one of them break on a guys TRX450r here at a local MX track, He made it 3 times around the track and on the 4th through the whoops it snapped.
