Replace rear and front shock/suspension?
Planning a long distance (30 000km +) dirt/dust road trip all the way around Africa in 2011. I will replace my rear shock closer to the time with a quality and more reliable one, as I have heard they do take a beating on the rough African roads and tend to fail.
Will it be necessary to replace my front shock as well with a better quality one. I haven't heard of any people who's front shock failed on them, and I wont be putting much more than the normal amount of weight on the front.
All information greatly appreciated, and any recommendations for which quality rear shock welcome.
