I am looking to build a full-suspension bicycle with coil rear shock. Currently I am considering using a DVO Jade shock with 55 mm of stroke. The shock is sold without a steel coil, which has to be bought separately to match the rider's weight and riding style.
However, it is strange that I cannot find a nominally matching coil from DVO's options (but see below). There is a slightly larger (2.25", or 57 mm) coil meant for shocks with imperial units dimensions. I wonder if I can use it instead.
The imperial-units coil is heavier but costs only 15 €. There is indeed a 55 mm version, but it is about 8 times more expensive.
Is this something viable to consider?
