Actually, both are the same travel.
The 10 uses rising rate springs that get stronger as they are compressed.
The 12 uses falling rate springs that are stiffer to begin with and get softer as they are compressed.
They both also use different length shocks that are valved differently too.

Dont mean to butt in but im looking to replace the suspension on mine. What should i go with? I ride around town and cricks and that sort of stuff. Never really jump but ride agressivly. I want as much ride height as possible!

yea ive got a 121 with the rear lifted pretty high .. and i broke the hole adjustable set up in the rear and rebuilt it by welding grade 8 bolts together and drilling it out and taping it and making it work the same as factory :D
