Almost time to upgrade the suspension....I've decided on Race Tech for the front, but I am undecided on the rear. Some say the stock shock with a new spring & steel braided adjuster line is a good fix. I have read that the Traxxion ($499) and the Race Tech ($599 or $899) shocks are prone to leaking. Does anyone with real-world experience on the two aftermarket shocks have any input?

I looked at both and decided on the Traxxion shock. The front forks were rebuilt using Race Tech components. The Traxxion shock is new, the Race Tech shock is a rebuilt stocker that they exchange for your shock.
