I had the suspension done on my 05 for my weight and just picked up a nice 06. I was wondering if the springs are the same so I can switch them.

They are different lengths but as I remember the 06 is shorter so all you would need is the proper spacer. My 06 and 05 YZ's had a negative preload so this would be the time to change that, also.

If the '05 springs are longer, using a spacer won't really help fit them to an '06, now will it?
