    Quake 7.3 2007 shock size and chainline problems

    Hi all,
    I have a Quake 7.3 2007 with a DHX 5.0 air. I am a bit tired of the shock getting stucked down and want to try a coil shock.
    Anyone can advise regarding size shock and any known incompatibility with any particular model?
    Also, I have recently changed the rear to 150x12 and the chain is rubbing on the front derailleur and sounding really uggly.
    Shall I change the bottom bracket? Spacers perhaps?
    Change also the derailleur?
    How do the more recent models solve this? The 2008 already comes with 150x12; does it have a wider BB?

    Many thanks in advance.
    Adan

    Ok, for those who are wondering or also need this information. I managed to get an answer from Marin UK distributor:
    Marin Quake Shock size is 8.5 x 2.5
    The 2007, 2008 and 2009 models come with the same BB, independently of the rear end (135/150).
    Though, the chainline obviously changes and it will definitely work "better" with a wider BB.
