I currently have a 400 lbs spring rate on my DH Aurum. I didn't weight myself with all gear but I'm pretty sure I can top 210lbs easily. I rode with it for a while now and to get a decent sag on the rear shock, I need to preload it to the max (per x-fusion recommendations, about 6 turns). Still, I find that I'm bottoming it out way too often but it doesn't feel harsh. I would just feel more comfortable to try a 450 lbs spring rate and use less preload to avoid coil/shock damage. Some calculators give me 400 lbs, while some can give me 450 lbs.
I'm just having problems to choose what spring to buy because that x-fusion shock isn't really documented much on the internet. I would like to buy it on Chainreactioncycles.com. Current shock is 400x80mm (about 400x3.14in).
I was wondering if that one would fit :
Manitou Shock Spring - Steel | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com (450x3" model)
Do you have any other suggestions? Will any of the nukeproof fit?
