best bang for buck?--> marz dj VS stance static

tell me what you think...Marzocchi DJ or the Manitou Stance Static....both good street/dj forks...but what serves the greatest level of performance and which is the cheapest, and also, what holds up to be the strongest....

Djers. The stance is proving to be more of a flop than anything
