The cost was also pointed by Planche Mag. The Shox leaves me a bit skeptical, although I've been a North fan for a while and like many of their products too. A slack of 6 to 8 cm seems exaggerated if the main purpose is vibration damping. Stiffer is not always better, but simpler often is. An old school UJ may do 80% of the job for a fraction of the price, without compromizing too much on nervosity.
