I have a Marzocchi Junior T, forks seems a little soft. I wanted to change the springs, where and how much are they? Thanks in advance. Fork is 2006 model.

Will the 03-04 Super/Junior T springs fit 05+ forks? Also, if someone increased the spring rate, is there a way to compensate the rebound without making compression too harsh?

The springs keep the fork at a certain height but don't affect compression dampening because the heavier rider balances the force from the heavier spring resulting in no net effect and how fast or slow the fork compresses. If I increase the spring rate, the rebound IS effected because the forces at play are the from the springs and the friction of the compression dampening and the forks will rebound faster. If I counter that with thicker oil, that might fix the rebound but the compression dampening might be too harsh as a result.

Basically I'm wondering if there is a way to adjust the rebound or compression separately (I can either use heavier oil and decrease compression slightly or use the same oil and increase rebound slightly, to compensate for the stiffer springs). I'm going to try and call marzocchi about the spring aplicability and I'll post my findings, haha i can even ask about the rebound and compression!

Buf if anyone has some insight...

Why the fvck do people ask these questions on the boards? You're not going to order the spare part here, you're going to order it from your LBS, an online shop, or direct from company. TRY ASKING THEM.
