Rear shocks for my DT3 (UK supplier) #1
I'm in the UK so ordered a set of rear shocks from NJB shocks www.njbshocks.co.uk/
I wanted these specifically because the spring diameter at 53mm is very similar to the original springs which are 51mm give or take.. Anyway Norman (the owner) did a custom build of his 'Classic' style shock because the standard minimum length available on his website is 35cm and I wanted them the same length as the originals at 32cms so he did that for me and adjusted the spring rate to suit my weight.
Quality looks great, should be no issues with clearance and excellent communication/service from Norman.
I'll be post a few pics of them on the bike pretty soon

For something effectively a handmade drop in replacement... pretty reasonable price!

Thanks for sharing, those look very nice. Not inexpensive, but they look very high quality (at current exchange rate £211 equates to about $280 USD).

Let us know how they feel after you get some seat time on them.
