Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Awesome Shock
I feel this is a huge upgrade to my X-Fusion Shock. It is uber plush and very very responsive, I feel the tuning is micro detailed to really suit your needs. I love the absolute lock off it give you that instant hard tail feel at the flick of a switch. Also I find the rotation bearing a nice add on but maybe it takes a bit off my lateral stiffness of my rear end. Well up to today all good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Very Poor Durability and Custopmer Support from DT Swiss
I have a Rocky Mountain Altitude 90 RSL and this shock comes as standard on the frame. It is probably the lightest shock on the market and with the reputation behind DT Swiss I expected that it would not give any trouble.
After about two months of use I noticed that the black coating on the stanchion was starting to wear off and every time the shock compressed it would make a noise. Over time this noise quickly became louder and the coating wore away even more on both sides. I took the shock to my bike mechanic and replaced the seals and recommended that the shock be dismantled once a month for a cleaning/mini service if I was to get any kind of life out of it.
After 10 months of rising (1 to 2 rides per weeks) the stanchion had worn so much that it no longer held air.
I returned the shock under warranty and was given every kind of excuse as to why this was my fault and that there was nothing wrong with the shock. After weeks of communication and mentions of consumer rights act and small claims court, the shock was eventually repaired under warranty.
I have been using the repaired shock now for 3 months (it got a brand new stanchion) and I can see the black coating coming off again.
While this shock was being repaired I purchased a special offer, non-carbon DT Swiss from CRC, for about EUR 100 so that I could continue to ride. After 3 to 4 months the black coating on the stanchion is also starting to wear away.
I also have a DT Swiss from fork on my bike and it has never given an ounce of trouble, the black coating is intact after 18 months of riding and I am very happy with it's performance. That said, I will never put a DT shock on the back of my bike again. I'm on the look out for a bargain Fox shock on CRC or Wiggle at present, as soon as I have one the DT's will be consigned to the emergency use only box.

When replacing a shock it is imperative that you choose a shock with the same eye-to-eye length as the original. Your NUD2 is running a 165mm length, with a 38mm stroke. These DT XR shocks are currently listed in 190mm and 200mm lengths, so will not be suitable.
