Are these things worth a shit?

Search didn't bring up much about them, yay or nay.

I just redid my shock mounts, and was looking at maybe getting the Bilstein 5125s, but these being adjustable kindof had my interest (already had Rancho 9000s, they sucked)

Anyone running (or used to run) the MX-6?

You've had them before? Going from "1" to "6" on the knob makes hardly any difference? :confused:

(the RS9000s it was a VERY obvious change when you turned the knob up).

Yes, and I agree. RS9k's make a pronounced difference. MX-6, not so much. At work, we call it the placebo knob. FWIW.

Stick with the bilstiens. The shaft on the MX6 is weak at the end and breaks off fiarley easily. We have warrantied quite a few for this problem. I think the shaft size is to small to have an adj rod inside it. You notice rancho's adjuster is on the body of the shock.

I have MX6's on the front and the adjustment knobs deffinately dont do a damn thing. I havent had any durrability issues yet though. I've had em for three years or so.

I bought the 12" travel 5125s.

Yeah, these are just for some normal trail running/crawling, no plans for jumping.
