    Yup. I wrote to YT yesterday, they themselves could not confirm or advise.

    Did you really order a 60mm stroke? Is it permanently set that way or is there a spacer on the shaft down by the spring perch? Why not get the 65mm stroke?

    I have a 2019 DHX2 65mm stroke, climb switch.
    I swap between 475 and 500lb SLS springs.
    My rebound settings are near the middle, compression settings near the light end.
    I weigh 168-175lbs and wear light gear, so 175-182lbs ready to ride.
    My bike weighs 31.5lbs with DH tires.
    Keep the Country country.

    I got a great deal on a very lightly used shock. Wasn't so much worried about 160 vs 170mm of travel.

    Maybe you'll get lucky and it has an easily removed spacer. In fact that seems more likely than Fox making 2 different length shock bodies for 60 & 65 stroke.

    I am waiting for a 425 lbs TI-spring for my RS super deluxe. Hope it will work for me, @175 lbs with gear.
    A friend of mine is happy with his 400 lbs spring and weigh 170 lbs geared up.

    It'll work if you like your suspension plush, active, and 30-35% sag. You may wish for more support pedaling and pumping. Because of the progressive rate 30% shock sag uses much more than 30% of the wheel's travel. I weigh 4-7lbs more than you and swap between 475 and 500. When purchasing my springs I considered that Neko weighs 185 and runs a 550 on a DHX2.
    Maybe my experience with a DHX2 is less relevant than your friend's on a Rockshox due to damper pressure.

    Thanks in advance!

    I had to get the 3" springs that were available at the time and they're a little longer than needed but this summer I'll get the 2.65"/67mm stroke springs to save some weight. Fox said they're fine to use with a 65mm shock and up to 2 turns of preload.
