Not sure of the cross fit, but what's wrong with yours?

theres nothing wrong with mine. i just want another one cuz i lower my bike for the ice everyyear, so im just trying to find other shock so i can keep that one lowerd instead of lowering mine then unlowering it back in the spring.

In that case, you should be able to use an earlier shock, like an '04 or '05 , as your lowered one without a problem as far as I know.

I can swap between my '00 WR400f, '06 YZ450f, and a '01 YZ250 I used to own. there are diferences between lenghts but the answer should be yes, even for recent shocks
