Rear shock for 2003 Ruckus I-drive 2.0

If I were to change my rear shock for my 2003 GT Ruckus I-drive 2.0, in the event that my current Vanilla RC ever was to unfortunately break or something, what would be a good replacement, what I want is something that would give me basically the same riding characteristics that the Fox Vanilla RC is giving me. Thanks for any info.

Push it

Get he Shock pushed if you can (dunno if thats possible in japan).

Or buy a manitou swinger 3 or 4 way, i rate them for down hill as equal or better than the Vanilla.
I could PUSH it, but this is in case I have to replace my Vanilla RC. I don't even know what size shock I need. And specifically I'm not going to want a shock with platform with my Ruckus I-drive, since I want to keep the basic same feel for the bike itself.
What about a Marzocchi Roco on my Ruckus I-drive

Here's another question. What about the Marzocchi Roco RC, here it's similar to the way a Vanilla is in the respect that there isn't any platform and has the same adjustments. Would this Work well with my Ruckus I-drive?

I know that I need a 7.5 x 2.0 rear shock but have no idea what I need for a spring. Also will this shock work with my current reducers on my Fox Vanilla RC?
