CCDB Stroke Adjustment
I'm looking at a 8.75 x 2.75" CCDB shock, and I'm wondering if I could adjust it to 8.5" x 2.5".
This article states that it is possible to adjust the stroke on a CCDB, but I'm wondering if it's possible for my particular shock.

I think your out of luck with that mod. That spacer thing will
only limit the shock stroke but the i to i of the shock will
still be the same. So your shock would still be 8.75 with a 2.5 stroke.
Post what you find out from Cane Creek. I think they should be able
to do that with the way the shock works with all the damping
in the external piggyback and piston rod basically just moving
the oil to the piggyback.
If you read the manual on CC`s web page you will see that one of the advantages with the CCDB has a continual oil circuit meaning oil is circulating from the main chamber, through the compression "barrel", into the rebound "barrel", and back to the main chamber.
If this is true, and the laws of physics are the same inside the CCDB as elsewhere, you can shorten the shock travel by simply changing to a shorter spring and compressiing the shock slightly without affecting the performance of the compression and rebound circuit. You have quite a few cm`s of preload adjustment threads on the outside of the main body.
Interesting. I emailed Malcom from Can Creek and this is his response:

You could not shorten the shock eye to eye with an external shim. Only the shocks’ stroke could be altered. Making it a 8.75x2.5. To shorten the eye to eye length would require a complete rebuild.
