    2002 Marzocchi Jr t Springs?

    Anyone know where I can get a pair of firm or extra firm springs for my 2002 Marzocchi 170mm Jr t pro fork? I picked up a pair like a year ago, but they are for the 2003 model and will not fit .

    Another option I thought of is using a spring from some other 30mm fork. The springs in this fork are a 2 piece design, I could measure the length of the upper spring and maybe find somethign else?

    Why a firm or extra firm? I am 6'5" and (currently) 220lbs, so pretty sure that is what I need. I ride my bike uphill so hopefully a stiffer spring will produce less bob in the front end.

    wow... my first upgrade in 2002 it came with blue stickers but I got red stickers to match the bike....

    honestly for 40 bucks more or less for spring...I would get a more updated fork. Parts would be hard to find for that fork anyway.

    a newer fork would be lighter and Parts would be easier to get then a jr T

    I'd LOVE to get a newer fork, but $40 for new springs is MUCH cheaper than $800 for a new fork.

    Still A LOT cheaper if I can buy firm springs for my fork. Perhaps one day a new fork, or even a new bike, but until then, I'll ride what I have.

    Going to be tough to find springs for that fork, being really old school with the 30mm stanchions.. Hell looking on pinkbike there's hardly anything for sale pre 2003 for marz

    @Jake - yeah, I figured as much...that's why I ask the guru's here. Also why I suggested 30mm springs for a different fork that has less travel.

    @Fast - I have not. Never hurts to try I guess. I CAN get fork seals from Real World Cycles, (actually they are the ones I ordered the 2003 seals from. GREAT people to deal with!!). Might try Mazocchi next week. Thanks!

    Those are a heavy/firm spring based on the part number on the package

    that's a bummer, I'm sorry. Have you called in and asked for John in tech? sometimes he can find old parts or has some stashed. We do offer a pretty rad upgrade program where you can trade in your old Zoke for a deep discount on a new one.

    No, I've not called anyone yet. It's not a huge deal at this point. I will have to checkout this upgrade program for sure though!!

    I'm in the same boat but with an old Z2 100mm fork. Checking the math even spending
    $100 for firmer springs is cheaper than buying new forks for $400-$500.

    I sent Marzocchi an email a couple of weeks ago to inquire about ANY kind of spring replacement. Haven't heard back from them.

    I guess I'll give them a call a hope I don't have to wait on hold for a half hour.

    Keep the rubber side down

    unfortunately we don't have anything for older forks. some 30mm seals and that's about it. eBay and classifieds are going to be the only source for anything. outside of that we offer a sweet upgrade program where you can trade in your old fork for a deep discount on a new one of your choice. with the 2015 models out we can offer any of the 2014 models for even less.
