Rigid or Suspension?

I'm running an SS Santa Cruz Chameleon with a suspension fork. I usually run my fork on the lowest setting (85mm) with the fork locked out. Well on Sunday I broke my fork, and was thinking about maybe going with a rigid front fork. I like the idea of the low maintenance of having a rigid fork, and I hate the way my suspension fork would give at the base of a hill. I just don't want rattle my teeth loose from my gums.

Tech at my lbs also recommended installing the right coil for my weight, but when I mentioned the way that I set my fork he said rigid would probably be a good idea.

I want to make the right decision, but I don't want to regret making it.

Thanks in advance.
