Mine measure out the same length, diff length shafts.
Maybe cause they are discontinued?.

The older shock bodies were threaded all the way to the top. Newer shock bodies have a gap (no thread) just beneath the lip...

Oh I think I see what you mean, but it's the other way around right? i.e. I see on the top part where the shock cap goes on the plastic T2 shocks threads go all the way down to lip, on the aluminum ones threads stop before the lip ..so I would assume that the cap won't sit down far enough on the aluminum shock then and would leak oil. The bottom part (where the adjustmant collar goes) has threads farther up the shock than the plastice ones, but that doesn't seem like it would matter other than allowing the collar to be screwed up higher.
