standard size

That is a pretty standard spring. You can get a fox or manitou spring that will work.

Fox springs are a tiny bit smaller ID. They'll go on a 5th E body and probably work, but Manitou springs are the exact match.

TNC, do you know if the spring rates will be the same, i.e. 425lb Prog = 425lb Mant.??? We were wondering that at th' LBS yesterday.

LBS gonna order a Manitou 450lb spring Mon. :thumbsup: Thanks for th' help.
Progressive's site doesn't :nono: have any info on mtnb shocks any more. I guess if I contacted them they :skep: might do some work on it or have a spring laying around.
Marzocchi told my LBS for a ROCO shock you would have to get any spring other than stock from someone else. :smallviolin: Zokie will not supply different springs for them, supwidat???
:rant: Shock peepahs be all :eek:ut: trippin'n'stuff.

Thankz for th' help guys.

the roco just hit the market...they don't have extra springs (or other parts for that matter) laying around...they don't have back stock built up yet. but, like all things marzocchi, improvements and mods will be based on the same chassis, so eventually parts and upgrades will be available.
