They no longer make that linkage (besides I am 90% sure it wouldn't work, they flipped the placement of bearings). You are sol in that regard. You could find the 2004 dh and switch out the linkage and swingarm. I am pretty sure that will work.
troy, adding a new shock without changing the linkage isn't likely to do much but kill your bike.

This is likely your best option :)
