    i have a diamond back xsl trail, and i have had it for about 5 months i mostly trail ride "aggressively" and "free ride" if thats what you would like to call it. well anyways after beating on my bike alot i started noticing some weird noises when jumping or dropping off semi big stuff. i have found my rear shock which is a fox vanilla plane janer "stock" came alittle loose and i bent one of the bolts that holds it in. :(

    well my question is this does anybody make stronger bolts? and i am thinking about upgrading my rear shock, something that actually dampens when i hit the big stuff. any suggestions?
