https://www.amazon.com/DNM-DV22AR-Mount ... rear+shock I think you want something that's a little aggressive and this will do it.Set the damping and your good to go.

You will have to see but most likely 6.5 or165mm. Does the original spring actually say 1000 pounds?

That frame is completely buildable frame by the way.That thing is a 6061 aluminum frame and you can turn that bike into a competent pure trail bike without a doubt in my mind.Very interesting bike by the way.The frame comes with everything you need to make the bike pretty serious and suntour XCR forks are about 80 bucks nowadays.

That's the plan! I want to make it into a good and reliable bike for down hill there's still alot of stuff that's needed new tires either the brakes are running the tires or there not on the rim so I'm going to put some maxxis tires on and I'm going to change the forks and yes the spring says 1000lbs

Before you go overboard remember that the bike does not afford the travel of a downhill bike.Those bikes tend to be on the expensive side of biking and its absolutely necessary you have the suspension to land major jumps.On jumps when the suspension bottoms out and there is no where else for the energy to go then first its transmitted directly to the frame and then the body and its extreme force.Trail riding is aggressive enough but downhill is another animal altogether.Air shocks and forks will blow out with enough force but springs will take the hit if you doing moderate jumps.Think trail because otherwise its a accident waiting to happen and look at the bike fail videos to get a better idea of the outcome before you do any major jumps on 6.5 inches of rear travel.
