This RockShox mounting hardware is most commonly used to install shocks like the Super Deluxe and Vivid, but works with just about every RockShox shock ever. Also compatible with other brands of shocks like Fox, Marzocchi DVO and Ohlins by installing a metal DU bushing.
You will have to purchase two sets of mounting hardware to install your shock on your bike, unless you have a trunnion shock which only has an open eyelet on one end. The trunnion end mounts to your frame using bolts that are included with your frame.Each bike needs an exact size of mounting hardware to ensure correct fitment. If you are unsure of the exact size you need, check out our comprehensive database, or check out our article on mounting hardware to learn how to measure for the size you need. If you're still confused, please contact us as we're happy to help you! If the size of RockShox Mounting Hardware your ordered has a flange on the outer spacers, the tapered flange part faces toward the shock.
The exact items included differ depending on what size you purchase. However, all you need to do is ensure that you are ordering the correct sizes for your frame and you're all good! The small baggy will include an inner sleeve/pin and several outer spacers. A new metal DU bushing is not included in RockShox mounting hardware kits. Though unlikely, if your DU bushings are worn out you can purchase new ones to replace them: RockShox DU Bushings (Pair)
Yes. You just need to pop out the white plastic IGUS bushings from the Fox shock eyelets and then press in a metal DU bushings included. You can always remove the metal DU bushings later on if needed, and we recommend using a DU Bushing Removal Tool to quickly and easily press those out.

In almost every case, yes you can install RockShox mounting hardware into a different brand of shock. Eyelet sizing in rear shocks is pretty standardized these days, and almost every brand uses an eyelet with an inner diameter of 15mm and width of 12.7mm (1/2") which is what RockShox mounting hardware is built for. If you have a modern shock, with an approximate model year of 2017 and newer, you can bet that the eyelet size is going to be the standard 15mm x 12.7mm eyelet size. This is absolutely true with all modern RockShox, Fox, DVO and Ohlins shocks.
However, some brands have used some different eyelet sizes in years previous to ~2017, so we recommend that you measure those eyelets with calipers to double check. And if your shock is older and dates back to the mid 2000's or older, we recommend measuring your eyelets to confirm your eyelet sizes no matter what.
While it may sometimes seem like the inner sleeve/pin from RockShox mounting hardware will fit into an IGUS bushing most commonly seen on Fox, Marzocchi and Ohlins shocks, it will not. The sizing is very close, but not the same, and attempting to forcefully press these mismatched pieces of hardware is absoutely not recommended. RockShox designs all of their mounting hardware around fitment with metal DU bushings.A new metal DU bushing is not included in RockShox mounting hardware kits.
