Maybe I have missed the discussion, but has anyone figured out why the front upper coil springs are set up completely compressed?
and the slider is upside down...at:Maybe I have missed the discussion, but has anyone figured out why the front upper coil springs are set up completely compressed?
The rear are set-up right, allowing the dual rate's to work, as far as the front, if you get a chance, look at the amount of thread showing on the shock body above the preload collar, there's about 6" of thread showing.That's 6" of available spring not being used. My understanding is that the upper spring ( sometimes called a tender)sets the ride height and handles the small bumps etc and that the main spring (lower) takes over for the big bumps and hard hits. These two springs work together until the slider hit's the crossover ring and then the primary spring does all the work.Are they being advertised as a dual rate spring on the front? It shouldnt be because that small upper spring isnt a working spring. A new spring package will work nice, you doing the rear too or just adjusting the spring weight?
