I want to buy the marzocchi EXR pro fork and as I was looking for some goood places to buy it at I came across this: At pricepoint.com (http://www.pricepoint.com/detail.htm?stylepkey=13755&style_id=315%20MAREP5%20KIT&detailName=2005%20Marzocchi%20EXR%20Pro%20w/%20FREE%20Cane%20Creek%20S-2%20Headset&dept_id=&deptName=&sub_id=&subName=&lprice=214.98&hprice=214.98) in the picture if you look closely you will find that the part that connects to the stancions is different from the jensonusa.com one (http://jensonusa.com/store/product/FK603A05-Marzocchi+Exr+105+05.aspx)and there are black things that seem to be preload adjusters on the one at pricepoint. Does any one know the difference and which one is better?

Looks like the one at jenson has the preload adjuster either internally or there is a small top cap you need to remove and turn down an allen key bolt. Or worst case, it doesn't have preload.
The one from pricepoint has it externally.

Ok thanks, Ill probably just get it from pricepoint because from reading other threads it looks you are right about popping the cap and the one at price point would be easier.
Edit: Oh yea and does anyone know if I need spacers for the steer tube to fit right On my 03 hardrock chromolly? and do I need some kind of lubricant? what kind?
Most likely you will have to cut the steerer tube. They come pretty long.
