Hello, i could do with some input from folks that know their older Rockshox forks. Bike is a 2010 Specialized Camber Elite, size XL. I'm 6'2" or so and 13.5 stones.
I'm planning to change the basic Rekon Gold fork for something a little better. Unfortunately, choices seem limited. Straight steerer, 1 1/8 and 26" wheels with max travel 120mm. I like the bike and it's better than me in most respects - except that damn fork. I have to have it at max pressure to get anything out of it and it bottoms out (enough to throw me off) at the slightest provocation..
I've been looking at a Revelation RCT3 Dual Air that has a straight steerer etc. but comes in at 150mm travel. I've struggled to find specs that tell me whether I can do it (reduce to 120mm). Lots for Solo Air, can't find anything on Dual Air.

Is it possible?
Are there realistic alternatives?
Am I really looking at ways to wring the best I can out of a pretty limited stock fork because there's nothing else to do?

Thanks for any advice you may be able to offer.
