Shocks and Springs

I have been researching what shocks to buy and it seems that everyone has gotten the progressive 412's and the Progressive Fork Springs 30/45.

My question is relatively simple. I would like to get black and not chrome shocks, Sooooo, can I get a different version of the progressives like the 440's or 418's or even the 412's for that matter as long as they are for a metric bike and somewhere in the 11 to 12.5 inch range?

Overall intent is to lower the bike some for looks and the front springs have a seal leak so I figured I would replace the spring while fixing the seal.

Thanks

Craig
