Hey guys,

Riding a 04' 5 Spot. Think its time to upgrade my romic to a DHX 5.0 with a ti-spring.

Trouble is, I'm not have any luck finding a ti spring with a 1.38 ID in a 450 x 2 for a shock spec in 7.5 x 2.

Any ideas?

Well, avlananche sent me a 450X2.25 for my 7.5x2.0 and said it would work fine. So I"m thinking if you look for a 2.25 you should have what you need.

perhaps more can chime in here.

Diverse Suspension Products (www.diverse-mfg.com/) will do one for $149. I am considering one for my 5-Spot also. From what I hear they are fairly reputable and they answered my questions quickly and thoroughly.
You would only need to order a 2.0 spring from them as they spec theirs slightly differently than other makers. A 2.0 spring will fit a 2.0 shock with up to two full turns of preload (as it should be). They use as little spring length as is required to keep the weight and cost down.
