As long as the 222 is long enough for the preload ring to contact it properly, everything will be fine. Measure from the end of the spring to the end of the threads on the shock body. If its >8mm, you're all set.

Springs are sized by lbs./in by shock stroke.

For example a 500x2.8 is a 500lbs./in by 2.8 in stroke.

You need to match the stroke length on the spring for the shock.
