    There isn't a DHX 4.0 in 7.875 x 2.5 right?

    I bought a Fox DHX online billed as a 7.875x2.5 which as far as I can tell is incorrect and that it would be a 2.25 (which is what I wanted) It was on a SC Blur if that helps...........anyways I'm going to upgrade the spring and the spring on it is the 2.8 ......... so I'm guessing that someone put the wrong spring on correct?

    Some bikes have shocks that are odd sizes that are specific to the frame. I am not familiar with the santa cruz line up, but its possible that it really does have a 2.5'' stroke.

    Never heard of a 8" Fox, yes 7.875, nor a 2.5 stroke on a 7.875 Fox.. Simply measure the eye to eye and stroke.
