    Yes - they all use the same size shock.

    Anyone try a 7.875" x 2.25" DHX 5.0 Coil on an Evo?
    What would happen with a 2.25" stroke shock on an Evo? I have a DHX 5.0 Coil 7.875"x2.25" that was on my Heckler. What spring weight for a 240lbs rider when geared up?

    The rear arch on top of the seat stay will hit the seat tube if bottomed out hard.

    I only know this because I put one on and let out all the air then compressed the shock all the way and it does hit the seat tube.

    But I had the bottom out setting on fairly high and I don't jump or anything so didn't feel too different than a normal 2.0 stroke shock.
