Patience Grasshopper. Wait for the springs.
That way, you'll know it was all done right and will have no after thoughts. :crazy:

hehe! I know the feeling. But getting the springs is cool, just another week.
It'll be worth the feeling you'll have riding it, set up right. :crazy:

Wait for the new springs, the old ones are most probably sacked out from heat anyway. R&D or Kibblewhite springs are superior to the OEMs.
