Will 2010-11 gen4 shock fit 04-05 gen1?

I have a guy selling a WP rear shock off a 2011 gen4 going cheap, he states it can be lengthen by 20mm, the shock comes 320mm stock & a gen1 is 334. Has anyone done this swap and is this possible?. Thanks

I dont think the gen 4 is possible.

The shock sits upside down on the 4th gen, so i dont think it would fit the 1st gen.

I know you can use 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gen shocks on a 1st gen.
