There's an interesting idea. What changes would one notice after changing the links but keeping the Gen4 shock? Will the ride height remain the same?

I'm currently running 6mm of shims on my Gen4 shock. Would I have to add or remove shims to maintain my current ride height? By how much?

I'm hoping to do as little trial and error as possible as I remember that shimming the shock was a small pain in the neck. Thanks!

These links add 2mm with gen4 shock and nothing with gen5 as they were designed to use the gen5. But 2mm is not really noticable.
The difference is with the ratio and how it will work the shock faster.
I believe it will work great as it will try move the shock faster which will make the damping work better. The standard plates are too slow to feel much damping at all.
The only thing i would suggest is if your a light person you may want to unwind the preload a bit so you can keep your sag somewhere near where it was with the standard plates.
If your on the hevier side then they will work better for you.
