I would say a coil shock would be key, but if you can get one cheap and service it (it sounds like this is no issue!) I'd say it would be hard to argue against a DHX RC4 (did these come in 200x57? I've always wondered about custom travel reductions, given the availability of 8.75x2.75 shocks...). Sure, maybe not the lightest, but easy as anything to service, especially with the schrader valve on the gas side. I'm surprised with the swap-able dropouts they don't offer anything that would change the geo. It sounds like they might be open to it, selling raw aluminum and whatnot... Could always bring your dropouts and a drawing to a local machine shop!
