I think you need 10 posts to be able to insert pictures, Never even heard of your bike here in the US.
Write an intro about yourself, pets, and favorite book, you'll get to 10 before you know it
btw: welcome

I can't figure the model of your shock but I've had a SSD 190SL and they generally work the same.
The red wheel on top is for rebound, read up on the manual of a recent DT shock here: https://dycteyr72g97f.cloudfront.net...WEB_ZZ_001.pdf

Do you have a better side picture of the fork , you only have closeups which don't tell much to me. Also include a serial number if visible.

Here's catalog from 2008, not sure what you want to know about the fork
lock out aren't as good back then as they are now. Actually now with the superior progressions, I rarely lock out even for uphill climbing.

ill get full pics of the fork tomorrow as now its already dark here. About the shock i want to fix the lock lever thats the only thing that doesnt work. About the fork it started leaking some oil from the right bottom side. It leaks just a little but after a day of not using it it creates a puddle the size of a grape. It leaks from a tiny hole.

Also could you recommend a cheap full chain stay (top bottom i mean). I bought this bike to get more into the mtb life. I had a cube aim 2016 before but this one feels way better even if its older. I can put 27.5 tires on it. Currently got 26x2.4(max 2.6 clearance) so not a bad fork except for the leaking part and im waiting on my shock pump still 2 weeks hasnt arrived yet

Ok, around the crank
What type of riding will you be doing? Is the rear derailleur a clutch type and is the front a single ring with a narrow wide ring? That combo has been bombproof for most types of riding even light lift assist.

Light riding ofc some casual trails nothing hardcore. I have a sram x7 and 1by9 setup. will check the tooth range. I was looking to upgrade to a SLX M7000 or a NX both 1by11. Prices were 113sram and 125 euro slx.

going to 1x11 will gain you about 10 teeth but the jumps between cogs with be greater. Doesn't matter as much for mtb IMO, but it bothers those who have certain cadences. The newer derailleurs will have clutch so, adding a NW chain ring should be sufficient to resolve any issues with chain drops, therefore no need for a chain guide. Which chainring to you have and how many teeth?

Shimano SLX CN-HG73 Chain
11-35T Cassette
Deore XT crank arm
32T crank
Sram x7 derailleur
Sram x5 shifter
Avid juicy three brakes.

Looking to upgrade SLX 46T cassette mostly cuz x7 is a bit wobbly. Also went to the local bike store and pumped both shock and fork and now it feels amazing lol. No more pedal strokes xD
I just need to find the rebound knob (i think that is what is missing) on the fork so i could stop that leak.
