Antennas need to be a certain length to match up with the cb's standing wave frequency. If it's not it won't transmit or receive well, and it could damage the equipment in extreme cases. Not sure what the next shortest size of whip would be that would work, but if the whip is too tall I'd get a fiberglass antenna on a spring stud.
I usually get mine from here:
