Looking into a new rear shock [ Help needed ]

I would like to replace the rear shock I have with something different. I have no idea if this is possible and really cant find any information [ havent talked to the local shops of anything ] and so I am looking for some answers from bikeforums. The shock that comes stock is a fusion or something, will anything else fit?

What is the stroke and eye to eye? I'm sure something will fit. I changed the x-fusion on my last bike to a 5th air but I had to make the bushing kit.

(random name of a rear shock) !!!

As noted above, you need to determine the stroke and eye-to-eye length. The you'll be able to look at shocks that are suitable replacements.
