Do I need a different spring?

5 posts in this topic

Hey I have a 2007 WR and I'm wondering if I should look into replacing the rear shock spring. I'm 6'5" and weigh about 240 (yeah I need to loose some weight) and I figure that stock shock setup is too weak for me. Maybe it not so I'm asking politely.

And what about the front fork setting? Should I adjust them? Thanks for your input guys.

At 240 you definitely need some heavier springs. Stock is a 5.3 on the rear and .46 on the front. It's set up for someone that's in the 175 range.

You're going to want to something like a 6.0 on the back and .50 on the front. Go to Race Tech 's website and go at least as heavy as their calculator recommends.

Thanks that's what I was looking for. I didn't know about them, I'll have to give them a call.

You definitely need a spring. But you also need to understand a little about how to setup your suspension after those springs are installed.

You need to check and set your sag , then you need to adjust the clickers to smooth out the ride. Then you will notice a difference

Thanks guys for pointing me in the right direction. When I get the spring I'll report back.
