    Size of Van RC for Spot?

    Please confirm for me: the proper 5er replacement shock size, should I wind up getting a Fox Vanilla RC that I might send in to PUSH, is 7.50" eye to eye, w/ 2.0" Stroke, 2.25 Spring....right?

    I'm just trying to figure out how you have 5" of travel on a shock w/ 2" of stroke. I never done good in fisics, and my new(used) Spot won't be here for a couple of weeks so I can't figure it out myself.

    Thanks,

    G

    I'll answer my own question,

    thankyouverymuch. In a thread 4 weeks ago, says Tappoix: "just so you all know, if you're looking for a replacement, you want a 7.5" eye to eye shock with a 2" stroke"

    5" of rear wheel travel with a 2" shock stroke is achieved by the rockers that connect the rear suspension to the shock. They reduce the movement at the shock by a ratio of 2.5:1
    190mm is the measurement for the shock i to i, which is as you say 7.5" with a 2" stroke and 2.25" spring.

    Makes sense now. Thanks.

    Man, I feel like I need to go back to Junior High and restudy levers and such. Must've been asleep during that lesson.
