    2011 Covert with RC4
    I have a 2011 Covert with a DHX RC4. I want to upgrade my spring to a TI spring. I can't find one anywhere that has the same specs as my current spring. I am running a 500 x 2.35, I see TI in 2.30 and in 2.50
    Could I switch to one of those, or do I need a 2.35? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    That number is where spring bind occurs according to the manufacturer. The Stroke on the Covert in 2011 is 2.0, so I would not go over the 2.35 you have, but anything in between is fine.

    Thanks Chad. I looked at Kronos and Renton, but still didn't find the right one yet. Do you know of any other companies or if your shop has any in stock? Thanks

    ya man, we have the renton springs. You can run the 2.25 stroke springs on that shock.

    Hey chad, what is the inside diameter of the Renton? The only one I found has a ID of 1.43. I was told it was to big. Is that the same one you guys got? Let me know. Thanks. Appreciate all the help.

    the DHX springs are 1.38, but they do rub on the RC4, the 1.43 is correct, it will be a little big in the spring seat but its normal, once you get some preload on it it wont make any noise.
