    Swap my 06 Bighit 2 Shock for a manitou

    One of my friends has a swinger 6 way that he purchased from santa cruz that he is looking to get rid of... I was curious what it would take to mount this shock to my 2006 bighit 2. I currently have the stock Fox Vanilla R coil mounted on the bike. the eye-to-eye lengths are both 8.75 inches and there is plenty of clearance for the 2.75 inch stroke on the swinger vs the 2.5 on the vanilla. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I am in the process also of trying out a 6-way on my Bighit 2. The shock mounting hardware that came on my 6-way was correct on one end but too narrow on the other end. I believe you can buy new eyelets for the Manitou but I am just going to use some 9.1mm long spacers with a 8mm dia hole on either side of the existing hardware. I am waiting for the spacers to arrive so we shall see how well it works.
