Polaris Indy XLT front suspension

I have a 1994 Polaris Indy XLT, i am looking at a set of used front fox shocks and springs from a 1996 Polaris Ultra. I am wondering if these shocks will fit my sled, I would like to get the front of my sled a little higher and I think these will fit. Just wondering if anyone knows for sure if they will work? thanks

Measure the center to center of the eye holes extended and closed.
If they are not too different, then they should work.

fox shocks

i know that the used fox shocks measure 15 1/2 center of hole to center of hole when they are off. Not sure what they measure closed, also I think my springs are wore out or something, the sled seems to sit to low in the front and it looks like the springs are compressed to much. I am thinking of buying the used fox shocks to replace mine and am trying to figure out if they will work or not. I would like the front of the sled to sit a little higher so thats not a problem as long as they fit and function properly. It looks like to me that the factory shocks that are on it are about 14 inches long off the sled
