Only one way to find out
I kept bottoming out on bumps but I'm using a pirelli rear
Hardtail is another option if you are on a budget and stock shock doesn't work out for you

^ what he said. The Met shock will work but you will bottom out. I cut the spring off the stock Met shock and replaced it with a piece of metal pipe, running hard tail.

Just keep in mind, the stock shock sucks donkey dick.

On a side note, All your "mods" are stock spec Ruckus parts aren't they?

the variator,boss and intake piping is from a ruckus. but the center spring and clutch springs is aftermarket. but not sure for what kind of bikes because the guy i bought it from sells parts for elites too. well the problem about running hardtail is that where i live is super bumpy so thats why i kinda want to save the shock.

We have a spacer/relocater we made up to try on a met with a ruck swing arm a while back. Not the pretiest, but it should work if you want it.
