    Ok, the fork you have on there is probally better than all 3 of those, DO NOT get any 3 of those forks!!!! Look into getting a Marzocchi Dirt Jumper 3, check on ebay you can probally get a good used Dj for $100-$300

    what forks came on the stp3 ? a quick google leads me to believe theyre suntours ? in which case, all 3 forks your looking at would be far superior... id personally reccomend the tora.

    The tora wouldn't match his riding style.

    My vote is to find a 2003 or above DJ1, excellent forks, and bombproof.
