Do i need the same length spindle for a 68mm BB as I would do for a 73mm.

Seems a daft question but my brains not working currently.

I have a deore HT II with a 73 x 121, but I need a 68mm BB....so do I keep the same spindle length, or knock 5 mm off.

Same length. The BB shell adds 2.5mm each side of the centreline.
