Need some help guys... This whole metric vs eye-to-eye thing has me confused as hell.

I'd like to change out the stock Fox Performance shock to a Fox DPX2 but I don't understand the sizing properly. SC specs indicate 200x51 which translates to 7.875x2.0 but when I asked the seller he said if wouldn't fit my frame. When I looked at the tune code it was from a Mach 5.5 which is 140mm whereas the 5010 is 130mm. I know I can't run 10mm more suspension on the 5010 nor do I want to, I just want to buy the correct shock size. Better yet, which shock can I buy online? The one on eBay was off the Mach 5.5 and thank goodness I didn't buy it. But now I'm hesitant to buy one online (i.e. JensonUSA, Amazon) for fear of buying the wrong size. They are both 200x51 (7.875x2.0) and neither are trunnion mount so what am I missing?
