Thanks for the reply Menso. My shock is a 7.875"x 2.25". Fox also makes a 7.875 x 2.0. The spring would be the same for either size. I have a couple of 500 x 2.35 and a 600 x 2.35. Fox springs usually show a spring stroke length a little bit longer than the shock they are intended for. I also have some spings for 2.5" stroke shocks and the spring shows a 2.55 stroke length. I can order one from Pricepoint but it will end up being about $40 after tax and shipping is added. I have always manage to trade springs with people but these heavier spring rates are less common in this shorter length. The frame is a Chumba Evo. My Santa Cruz Heckler and Bullit both used much lighter spring weights but they were single pivot whereas the Evo is kind of a modified Horst linkage design requiring a much heavier spring weight. I have a 600 in there now and it is a little light for my Clydesdale weight. Chumba recommends a 700 but I think that will almost be too much considering I am dropping lbs and will probably be sub clydesdale by fall.
