Would it be a big problem to put a 3 inch stroke coil on a 3.15 inch stroke shock?

i don't think there is a 3.15 inch stroke shock, what's the total length of the shock? i'm asuming it's a 9.5, so yea a 3 inch stroke coil is the appropriate.

It is 9.5 but I replaced the spring on it that says it is a 3.15 so thats why im confused.

exactly, the spring is 3.15 inches of travel but that doesn't make the shock 3.15 inches of travel, all shocks come in a standard, the .15 inches is just a buffer that resulted from manufacturing, a 3.0 shock will do the job just as good as long as you don't add a bunch of preload on it

It's confusing because the cheaper black steel Fox springs use a different way of measuring the spring versus the orange SLS springs (which use stroke shock length).
