need help since my LBS doesn't speak English or have enough knowledge. I had a 99 bullit with the old Fox vanilla RC. Loved it, but SC is sending me a whole new bike frame but without a rear shock. They told me that I could use my old shock to put the bike back together. The size of the shock is so different from what the new settings ask for. I think the old shock is a 7.87? but Bullits new specs ask for 8.5 X 2.5. Confused because I thought the old shock would throw the geometry off way too much. Over here I don't have the ability to go down and buy a shock because everything is Shitmano. What should I get, because we do a lot of dirt jumps and downhilling only 3 to 4 times a year. Most of my riding is urban street and horrible uphill trail riding. Should I stick with FOX or try and buy a 5th element. I'm scared because I'm outta touch and bikeless. Hold me....

Thanks ahead of time...

Would the fox 8.5 X 2.5 and 5th element 8.5 X 2.5 have any diffrence in clearance?
help? I'm confused
