Shock dimensions - how are the measured?

Looking at getting an IBEX Ignition frame, and transferring parts from my MC San Andreas.

The IBEX states it takes a "standard" 6.5" rear shock. I have a Cloud Nine that I want to use -- and measured from the center of the mounting holes it's 6.5". Measured tip to tip, it's about 7". I assume the proper measurement is from center of the mounting holes, correct?

Correct.

Shock length is measured as "eye-to-eye" in inches and stroke length in millimeters. Yet another bike item mixing metric and SAE standards of measurement.
