    Sherpa rear shock specs?

    Silly question here, but the bike's not in front of me and I can't seem to find the info online.

    I have a 2015 Sherpa and I'd like to replace the rear shock. I can't seem to find the right size for a replacement, though. Would anyone happen to know offhand what size it is? From RM's website it's a "MANITOU MCLEOD CUSTOM VALVED. SMOOTHLINK™ DESIGN 95MM. REBOUND / 4 POSITION IPA PLATFORM SETTINGS".

    I'm just looking for the right size replacement in a Fox or RS, so that I don't order the wrong stuff. Thanks!

    If you order it as a new Fox piece they will have a database that relates the shock size and valving to a specific year and model of Rocky. It looks like the same size as the Element from 2012-2016, which would be a 6" x 1.25" and would likely need the same valving as the Element shock

    ^ Thanks very much.

    I've hemmed and hawed, and I've settled on the Fox Float DPS. This may be another silly question, but I figure it never hurts to ask before I spend $450+ on something I can't use...

    Would anyone happen to know if I will need new/additional bushings to swap the stock Manitou shock out for the Fox? Or should I expect the Fox to come with whatever I need? (Or perhaps reuse what's on the bike already.)

    Thanks again!

    The last time I ordered a new Fox shock to a particular Rocky spec it came with reducers and bushings, other than the Rocky specific linkage pieces which I re-used, but that's a small sample, so you'd hope so, but you never know for sure until it arrives.
