    I've seen fox shocks brake like that before at desert races. Can't say I have ever seen a king shaft snap like that. I'm not sayin, I'm just sayin...;)

    Is that right? Hmm...yeah King is unbeatable and the only other way I would go to be honest. Figured Fox was a dead second. Luckily, they're warrantying it and I'm getting a new one shipped tomorrow.

    Did they send you out a new one or did you bite the bullet and buy a new one?
