I have a 1999 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR XC and a 2002 Giant AC Air. Although the Giat is a newer bike, I really like the frame & feeling of the Spec SJ, but thefront fork & rear shock on the Giant are higher quality. So, I want to swap parts on each bike. I am comfortable doing maintenance and the parts all measure about the same, so will not be altering the height or other dimensions of the bike.
However, I am asking for anyone's opinion as to whether or not swapping parts is a good idea or am I just better of buying a new front and rear shock?
Also, if anyone could share their experiences, what to watch out for, I would appreciate the feedback.
