    I've got an '03 Launch and I don't think it would work at all. I was getting a new spring for the existing Vanilla RC and Fox sent me a DHX spring by mistake. The DHX spring was HUGE compared to the Vanilla spring. There's no way the shock could fit in the space provided. If you had someone bend the supports out of the way, that would severely weaken that part of the frame. I'm just guessing here but I don't think it would work.

    If the supports are apart the same amount as on the Shore 2004, there should be no problem with clearance.I had a 5th Element in there with enough clearance and 5th Element springs are the same diameter as DHX springs.
    Well, there was another problem though: the chock could not be run in the 7.1" setting because the piggyback hit the swingarm under full compression.It was a matter of milimeters, but more than enough for possibly damaging the shock.There was no problem in the 6.1 setting though.Anyway, the Shore's swinglink is different than that of the Launch.
