Hi, have new lighter rate "pressure" (not the main) springs on the way from Factory Connection per their recomendation. If someone out there has experience with this, I would like to know if you can change them from the top of the forks, or do the forks have to be completely dissassembled? Thanks in advance...

You can leave the main tubes assembled, but the cartridge has to be removed from the fork, since that's the only way they can be bled free of air when they're reassembled.
