'98 440 Touring LE Shocks

My wife's sled has the stock hydraulic, non adjustable shocks. I'm contemplating upgrading the rear to an adjustable gas shock, preferably with adjustable dampening. Since it's an older, inexpensive sled I'm not willing to put over 2 to 3 hundred into them. So I'm wondering if a swap from a sport class S chassis sled would work. The LE has a 136" track with a falling rate rear suspension while the sport sleds have a rising rate, so I don't know if these shocks are compatible.

Where do you see this listing? I know HPG's are available through Dennis Kirk for about $110, but not what I'm looking for. I'd like adjustments for rebound dampening which was available on the race sleds in that era. Problem is I don't know if the shocks are compatible from short to long track and falling rate to rising rate.

Am I missing something? This will show the stock hydraulic shock number and diagram, is there a cross reference or compatibility list I'm missing?
