Shock rods interchangeable?

I have a 2001 YZ250.

I took the shock apart to reservice it (bought the bike about a month ago, piston skirt shattered, so the cylinder is off getting re-plated, and am putting a new connecting rod and crank bearings in the bike) and when re-doing the shock, I find a major nick in the shock shaft.

Talked to a buddy about trying to get the nick out, and he suggested that I just buy a new shaft/rod.

Was looking at the "For Sale" section, and was wondering if I could buy somebody else's trashed shock, and just pull the shaft out and put that in my shock body?

Say from a like year Yamaha product?

(Have tried swapping out the shaft from a 98 WR to a 01 WR, and they were of different length, so I am wondering about same year....)



I have something that might work but I'll need some measurements from you.

PM me if you're interested and we'll see what we can do.
