Different HeadShok sizes?

I'm helping a friend in another state put together a budget MTB. Someone gave him a Cannondale frame with a Headshok fork, but the fork has some damage. We're looking for replacements, but he claims he heard that there are different diameters of Headshok forks. Is this true? I've never heard this before.

You might be better off looking for a headset conversion that lets you run a normal fork. Bunch of stuff info pops up on google "headshock to regular fork"

I would second the idea that you should get an adapter and run a regular fork instead if getting a Headshok replacement.
