ok so i need some help here....

This summer i was riding near Durango,Colorado on a brand new 06 big hit and jumped off a 15ft. drop and the "170mm Marzocchi Drop-Off Triple Fork" snapped in half

what should i replace them with?


and then i have my junk bike 04 Haro 8.2 that needs alittle better forks cuz it has Marzocchi EXR Pro forks and its making weird noises everytime i compress them
its like a scrapping noise

so any input on this would be nice
thank you

Well, I don't know much about forks that are good for 15ft drops (good god), but it sounds like all that other fork needs is a servicing, perhaps some new oil? Bring it to a bike shop and see what they say, could save you some bucks.

A DC fork should defiantly be able to handle a 15 footer, I'm guessing he probably cased the landing.

Anyway I would suggest anything from the Marzocchi 66 line, SC on a Big Hit rides so well.
