    2002 stinky shock ?

    I have a 2002 kona stinky dee-lux with the fox vanilla R (7.875" eye to eye, 2" stroke). The shock is starting to go and I would like to know if a 8" eye to eye, 2.25" stroke fox vanilla R or RC would fit (work too). I did some measurements to see if it would fit and not bined, but would a real shock work. I would like the idea of getting a true 6" rear travel out of my stinky. And the fact that I saw 5 fox RC 8" iti with 2.25" stroke for $150-$200 is nice. So would it work?

    The '02 Deelux and Primo were both 6" travel. Your cheapest and probably best bet is to send the Vanilla R to PUSH and have them work their magic.

    NO NO NO dont do it. i bought (what the seller told me was a 7.875x2, but it was a 7.5x2) but when i put it on, it caused the bb to sit 1" too low, and it made the seatstays slam into the seatclamp. and that was the same stroke. i wouldnt be surprised if you have the same problem with the extra stroke. it will also throw off your geometry. im gonna go with grateful biker.. just dont mess with the wrong lengths, bad things happen.
