Has anyone here done this conversion? How much longer is the TT shock than the XT? Where did you find your TT shock (ebay? overseas?)

Thanks for the tip!

What year shock did you transplant into which year XT?

Can you wager a guess as to how much it raised the ride height? Is the spring roughly the same stiffness, or stiffer?
