The only place, I know of, you can get a spring for a 5th now is a Manitou, and yer gonna need around a 500 or 600lb spring. Somewhere there'abouts. You might get lucky and find one though, good luck. 5ths have become old school very quick. Still a good shock IMO. I ran a 425 spring on my Bullit & I'm 170 w/o gear.
