Fork decisions

I'm having issues with my 2002 SID SL on my stumpjumper fsr xc pro. The SID does not quite inspire confidence on technical downhills and the "climb it control" is already broken. I was thinking of sending it back to rockshox to get the climb it control fixed, selling it on ebay, and buying a new fork. I was thinking something along the lines of a Marzocchi Marathon S 100. I was going for 100 to help on the downhills a little more.

Does anyone have any experience with the Marathon?

Is the Marathon worth the price?

Is it worth trading out my SID for a Marathon?

If you can answer any or all of these questions, plz do so. it would help me tremendously.

Thank You.

My only response will be that Marzocchi is top notch...If you have the money and you want the best then you can hardly go wrong with Marzocchi.
