Try their spring calculator  for front and rear springs.


I would use a .54 in the front .

When you put that rear spring in, increase the dampening on your shock. I went just about all the way to the hardest setting. Otherwise that spring will have a tendency to buck when you land a jump. Threw me off a few times.
