    Coil Shock for Stroke Reduction

    I'm considering picking up a second hand coil shock in 190x50mm to modify to a 184x44. Depending on the shock, all it may need is an additional 6mm 'topout' spacer on the shaft assuming that still leaves enough preload adjustment. Any problems with this logic? Anyone done similar?

    Currently looking at something like a fox van rc as they can be had fairly cheaply. Anything else I should consider?

    Had it done on a DHX2. Worked fine.
