I have a 2017 fox 40 factory with the fit4 damper. I might be getting an intense m29 and I want to use my 27.5 fox 40. Is it possible to get some 29er lowers and use the stanchions, airspring and damper from the 27.5 fork or should I just buy a whole new fork?

im pretty sure the internals and everything isn't compatible with 29. you could try scavenging around for a used 49 but unless it's significantly cheaper than a new 40 (29), just get the new fork. the new grip2 is also much superior to the old fit4 which you can especially feel on dh bikes.
in short, unless it's emotional or something, id look at old 49s if you're looking for a previous gen fork for some reason, but otherwise i'd get the new 40. and I'm 75% sure you can't use the internals from 27.5 but I'm not 100% sure so ask around just in case
