OK if you just want a "look" I can see it..... but no way is that DRZ fork as good as a nitrided USD fork in any way... strength, stiction, triple clamp rigidity are all way better on the USD. The DRZ forks are just CHEAP and are a really old design. As far as the rear shock goes, you get what you pay for . An Ohlins would be a drastic improvement.
