I own a scott genius 30. The rears shock has been a lemon since the day I bought it. I have had it replaced/serviced 3 times under warranty. It is now g again and I want a permanent fix. I was wondering if anyone knows if you can retro-fit another brands rear shock to replace the equiliser 2 shock. Scott advises you cannot but I question their motives for saying this. Has anyone had experience in doing this?
Alternatively, does anyone know where I can purchase an equiliser 2 or the next upgrade from for a decent price. I was quoted $600 by the rep.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Unfortunately you're limited to just the shock you have. No one else makes anything comparable.
Which was great for Scott but sucks for customers.
If it was a good idea other brands would have picked it up.
The guy who championed this has since gone to Cannondale and some similarly ugly designs are now emerging there.
It's a real pity the shock doesn't use standard seals. They are a wear component and at least with fox and rockshox push shocks you can self service the air seals.
