I'm a newb when it comes to full suspensions but I have a Heckler that has the Fox DHX 5.0 rear shock on it with a 400x2.45 spring. It was supposed to come with a stiffer spring but the shop messed the order up, blah, blah, blah, etc... Anyway, my buddy has a 550x2.35 spring that he said he will give me but I am not sure if it will work. Can anyone help?

I'm 280lbs if it helps.

If it's a DHX spring it will work.

Heckler's come w/ a 2.25" stroke shock so 2.35 will work as long as you don't go overboard on the spring preload. Some shock manufactures run spring strokes almost the same as the shock strokes.
