    Rock Shox Psylo spring replacement

    Hey there fellas so I just built myself up a new ride I got a psylo xc fork from my shop and I need to stiffen it up, i know that i would need the black spring for it but unfortunatley being an older model fork the spring kits are super hard to find. Although someone told me I could just figure out the dimensions of the spring and grab another spring that will fit my fork, what i want to know is, is this possible? if so what spring should i use? also on the side of the fork on the the label is says spring: u-turn... does that mean that any "U-Turn" spring will fit?

    I have the same problem. If you found a black spring in the past year or so since you posted this could you let me know where you found it?

    So I guess no Psylo springs exist in any NOS pile of parts anywhere in the world. Kinda sad.

    Have you pulled the spring to measure it to see if any current model year RockShox forks use the same or similar spring dimensions? Have you checked with your local bike shop to see what they can do?

    There are 30mm coil spring fork parts available for newer forks. You need to do some legwork to figure out if they will work. I suggest pulling it and bringing it to your local shop. They should be able to tell you if something current will work.

    Psylo forks are long dead so you'll have to do the work.

    Thanks, Ill do that. I think the last generation of the Judy has the same U-turn spring assembly maybe...hopefully but those Judys are even more rare than Psylos.
