80's Full floater shock compatibility

I am trying to find a solution for a rear shock for a 84 PE175.  Will any of the RM rear shocks of the era bolt in? I know at some point the RMs went to piggy back, which will not fit. The PO of the bike fitted a shock from a Yamaha XT rear shock but its way too soft and the bike has lost some seat height. I am trying to return it back to suzuki form. I was thinking maybe RM125?

Overall length of shock, reservior hose, travel, and valving will be very different. Even if you could get it to fit, it would feel like riding a bull............. the front would bottom soooo easy, you could apply for Obamacare! If you could graft an entire rm125 suspension, that would kick ass on modern trails!
