    Mach 5.7 and 5.7c rear shock size?

    Maybe I'm an idiot but I haven't been able to find the info anywhere.
    I haven't received mine yet so I can't measure it myself.
    If you guys would be so kind as to list the shock length and stroke I would appreciate it.

    It took a while to make it in here to check this thread. Thank you.
    My frame will be here either Tuesday or Wednesday.

    I was curious about the shock as I have a RC4 Kashima with Ti spring left over from my Blur TRc. The stroke is slightly different so I'll just have to grab a different shock as a spare.

    The other consideration is the valving of the shock, which will be tuned for the specific frame it was specced on. Swapping between different frame designs can lead to poor ride quality (shock can be over damped or under).

    I'm very well aware of that. I had the RC4 shock body and if the dimensions match I would have had it tuned for the 5.7C. I'll have to hit up my suspension guys and see if I'm correct in being able to use the same shock and having the stroke shortened.
    I know that Specialized used to send out Fox shocks with external travel spacers to limit the travel on Demo 7 frames.
    I just want to have a spare shock on hand. I'll get it sorted.

    Spares are always a good thing, nothing hurts more than waiting for the shock to come back from servicing while everybody else is out riding....
