A 230 x 65mm metric sized shock (RMB Slayer, Pivot firebird etc) is exactly 11mm shorter in both dimensions than a standard 9.5 x 3 DH shock. Jam an 11mm spacer in the negative chamber and away you go. I have converted two coil shocks thus far for my Slayer that have cost 5/8 of FA to buy and sold the first at 150% profit because it was "new" and "metric" and "so enduro". I mated a Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub gear to a Shimano front shifter in 1997. My pub bike was dialled even though I couldn't legally go to the pub...  I'm also offering my angle grinding services to anyone that wants to shoehorn a Fox 36 internal into a 35mm Rock Shox chassis.
