    Bushing spacing size for 2017 RM Element-Fox DPS?

    Im in the midst of converting my 990 Element from the RS Monarch to the Fox DPS rear shock and of course the bushing size is different. My LBS is really struggling to find the proper size for the Ride 9 end of the linkage, we are on the 4th set, and now they are saying we need to file down the spacers to make it fit. This seems very bush league for what I'm assuming is an available size from Fox? If anyone can give me the exact bushing measurements so that I can have the shop order the proper bushings, it would be a great help! Thanks

    The hardware size for the Element is 8x30mm for the link end of the shock. You then use the reducers that come with the frame to complete the assembly, which is measured at 40mm wide. The reason we have these reducers is that they interface better with the Ride9 chips.

    You can also order the bearing eyelet hardware that is featured on the Altitudes and Instincts. These are also 40mm wide and will work great with the Element.
