If it rides better with the coil you need to think are you going to carry your bike or ride it, weighing everything can make you go crazy.Stood on my questionable home scale this morning and it had me at 187#s in street clothes.
Cascade link, Arma, 650# spring, I got exactly 15.7mm sag in the seated position with the lightest possible spring preload. Just enough spring preload so that the spring doesn't rattle. Cascade recommends 15.1mm sag at the shock shaft but I found about 16.2 mm to work better for me on the Cascade with the air shock.
I've noticed the springs do sag a bit more once they are ridden.
Anyways, this spring is certainly close enough that I'm going to be able to make it work.
The Arma is the lightest reservoir coil shock, the new springs are lighter than the old ones although the Cascade requires a considerably stiffer rate. Yet still the EXT is 300 grams heavier than the DPX2 which in combination with the Cascade link performs freakin' phenomenally. That weight gain is hard for me to stomach. It's going to need to be damn amazing for me to keep the EXT for trail riding.
I'm waiting on a small part and can't ride just yet, unfortunately. Will update when I do.

I was worried about the weight of coil, but once I rode it I actually found my bike climbed better and also went downhill better. So I dont worry anymore
