I have the same sled & am looking at the same upgrade. Would love a FLOAT EVOL QS3 there. The measurement is around 16.75" (this is with the shock in the skid). I have a FLOAT EVOL 3 R out of my 2013 XF, but I believe it's around a 1/2" too short.

I couldn't find any aftermarket offerings for a FLOAT shock on this sled - let me know if you do.

17" eye to eye, '17-'08 use 16". You can use the 16" just need to use the shorter rear link.

Great info. So does the HC (141) use the same shocks as the M sleds then?

I just so happened to have a new shock linkage from my old 2013 XF laying in the shop and my old Fox EVOL R from that same sled. With the shorter shock linkage, everything lines right up utilizing the shorter shock. Nice!!
