    you need to know more info. 1 the fully open i2i the fully closed i2i and this will give the stroke that you need. then you will need to work out the fitting kit needed as not all shocks use the same mounting hard ware. New kit WILL be needed.

    Contack MOJO or TFtuned for a replacement shock.
