opinions and experience wanted

alright, riding my Trek Bruiser all summer i've found certain parts that came on it leave somethign to be desired.

I'm not gonna change the fork til it breaks, but these are the options i'm looking at

Rock Shox Pike Race U-Turn
Marzocchi All Mountain SL
Marzocchi Z.1 Freeride 1

Then come the other parts i want to change

Race Face Evolve DH crankset and RF Evolve BB
Avid BB7 Mechanical Disc brakes 203mm front and 160mm rear
SRAM X.7 Rear Derailleur
SRAM Attack Trigger Shifters (unless the Shimano shifter on there already will work with the SRAM x.7 the shifter on there, i'm unsure of the model, but it says CI-DECK and it's attached to the brake lever)

parts of less importance to me right now

Deity Handlebars
Crank Brothers 50/50 X platform pedal
Race Face Diabolous Stem
MRP chain guide with probably 34-36 teeth
Ultimately i'd like to get Mavic DeeMax wheels or some Azonic Outlaw wheels
