Here is the aim

Fit a modern funtioning rear shock to my LTS 1996/97 model

With research I have got it down to a 140mm eye to eye Fox float will go on but only from the photos attached. I couldnt actually find any deeper information on the conversion.

So not knowing much about the shocks can I take it that any 140mm eye to eye will function correctly as for example the following I found on ebay? or will it do deeper with shock length and travel 5.5" x 1.0'' for example ?
