One more question. Upon further research my spring has two pink dots which makes it a progressive rate spring. I thought the 08 came with straight rate ti spring

Is it wound straight, or progressively? You can tell by looking at it.

If it's Ti, a magnet won't stick.

If it's straight rate wound (coil spacing is the same over the length of the spring), and it is marked with pink, that should be a 5.5.

Starting with '06, the rear springs were titanium. In either '08 or '09, they switched back to steel, as I recall, and I can't remember which year that was.
