DDC Rear Spring option
« on: January 30, 2019, 02:10:25 PM »
I've scanned through this section, and it seems like the recommendation for someone above 200lbs to get the preload in range is that the front springs can be replaced, but for the rear shock recommendation is to get a new shock (I see Wilburs mentioned). 

Is that right, or have people had success with just a new spring on the rear shock?  A bit out of my budget right now for the shock so will hold off if that's the case.

Yes, I'd seen that one, but since you'd said "Hoping this will get me in spec sag wise and maintain all the DDC functions" I wasn't sure if this worked for you or not?

I plan on installing the stiffer springs sometime in April. I will post results then.

A good read.  Looks like the Triple Tuning link now directs to Wilbers, so looks like just the shock option there, no separate spring.  Plenty of other good information in there though.
