I have a Fox Vanilla RC on my 2003 GT Ruckus I-drive, with a 550 Ib spring, is this a good spring for a rider that weighs around 180Ibs plus gear which might be 190Ibs?

If I'm not mistaken that bike used a 7.5 i2i x 2.0 stroke shock correct? if this is the case. then your spring should be fine as long as you don't mind your sag being @ 30%. I'd say try it, then if it feels to soft try going up to a 600 or 650.

20-25% sag is the standard for XC riding generally, however most trail riders use between 30-35%. Good luck
