suspenssion travel and frame design

hi, i have this question, im looking on some new fork for my bike, i have an 05 rockhopper stock, except for the tires, and looking to upgrade the fork, currently a manitou axel, it works fine for me, but i find it very heavy and so. anyway... i was looking tru the Marzocchi Mx Comp, i thnik i may be able to afford it (im on a budget) for Xmas but almost everyone sells the 120 mm travel version while mi bike is designed for 100 mm, is it too wrong if i put this on the bike even by the 2 cms difference? can i do that?
another question is how can i repair the seals on my current fork, the left one keeps moving up after a big hit...

Hey I did a search for you and sells Marzocchi MX Comp 105mm although it will be off by 5mm from your original. Im not sure if this will greatly affect your geometry though.
