Why do you what to replace them? do you need to or just want the zoochies?

WAY to much difference in length, they wont fit.

should be able to get shivers in 630mm or so, if there unavailable then why not go for hornets or gpx's

also you would need a 12 inch front wheel, both on 10's would look stupid and feel retarded.. not to mention probly thru the handling way out the door

those marzochis on ebay are not a bargain , and they do not retail for over 1500 ....

the marzocchis that do retail for that much , are much higher quality and much better fork .. and comes with genuine zochie triple clamps , formula brakes and a complete front marzocchi wheel.

You can send them a email or call them straight up to make sure before you order anything ?

And i think you mean buying stuff "online" not "offline":confused-smiley-013
