Thanks. So is v2 same as v1, but not LS version? I guess that's what I was really asking. I have a small frame just wondering if that would lengthen it out any and stabilize it abit. Thinking to put an angleset on it aswell.

There is no difference in the swingarms between regular V2 and LS versions, just the front triangle was changed for LS bikes. The differences in the swingarm from V1 to V2 were for tire clearance and cable routing. So if you have a V1 frame, changing to any V2 swingarm will only get you a little tire clearance, and make the cable routing a little awkward. If you have both versions of clevis you can see which one works best with the combination. But there is not really much benefit to the swapping swingarms overall. You would gain more from the angleset. You could also try a 44mm offset fork.

The LSV2 is boost and the whole pivot area is wider. Geometry is the same as the V1. The LS v1 might match up. Not sure why, what is the benefit? unless it is a fix for a crack?
There is no V1 LS, and the pivot area didn't change until the V3. Anything pre V3 will bolt up, V3 only works on V3.

Boost did become available during V2 production, that's something I didn't mention but obviously important depending on what OP is trying to do.

Ok thanks for info. LS swingarm inquiry was off the cuff. Along with the angleset, I'm co templating a 34 SC fork if I go with upgrades on the v1 relic🙄. I think the SID on it is 51 offset. I'll look into what's offered in the Fox. I'll want to get it with offset that will work transferring to a newer bike in the future.
