The shock should be the same i2i and should also have the same stroke or you could lose travel. Make the handling worse. Have tyres or frame parts hitting each other causing damage.

Not to mention the correct fitting kit.

The Monarch comes in different i2i, so how you know it's 200mm is beyond me!
