i have a diamondback xts 3 and i am looking into upgrading the rear shock. it has a rockshox deluxe 6.5". does anyone think i could fit a 7.875" fox float? it looks like it might be close and the olny thing that may hold it back are the brake lines which could be extended(but dont really want to do this). also, could i just compress the shock a bit on the way in or will that screw things up? any suggestions or recomendations would be graetly appreciated. thanks

I think its dangerous to exceede the eye to eye lenght and will alter the ride lots as the shock is tuned through different parts of the stoke.:nono:
