MARIN QUAKE 2009 17.5 inch med DOWNHILL-FREERIDE opinions please

and could i fit rockshox boxxer race shocks 2005?
If it's good enough for Shaums March, it should be good enough for you.
One with a spring and good damping characteristics.
More than you'd want to spend.
Depends; but yes.

Depends on what? and rockshox boxxer race forks 2005 vs marin bomber 2009, whats better?

and can you recommend any shocks?
Fox DHX RC4; Cane Creek Double Barrel; Avalanche DHS. And get an RCS ti spring if you can afford it.

Now you are asking what's better, which is a totally different question. Putting an '05 Boxxer Race on will get you an an older, low-to-mid-grade dual-crown fork on a newer frame. Leaving the Marzocchi 66 RCV on will give you a pretty decent long-travel single-crown. You have to decide which trade-offs are worth it.

ok thanks i think ill keep the shock standard till i upgrade the forks or would it be better to upgrade the shock?
Keep the Rocco and run it 'til (or if) it blows. I don't know much about the air TST but my experience with a coil Rocco WC was positive. If you want dual-crown, look for a 888 RCV.

what about Rockshox Boxxer downhill DH forks 06?
What about it? Ride? Race? World Cup? Used? Used by whom for how many seasons at what level?

thats all the info
Yup, looks like a fork for sale on the internet.
Stickered like a Team or WC but I have my doubts. It's really anyone's guess unless you actually ask the seller. Price is reasonable if it: 1) works; 2) was not badly abused. Only you can decide if it's worth taking a chance on.
