These are imposter shocks, you would be lucky to get 2 weekend rides from them. Some one signed up on BT just to sell something similiar. Here is the link. new piggy back rezzy and drag shocks


Remember you get what you pay for!!!

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.
