based on the 06 owners manual (under FAQ's on the website) your spring should be 450lbs. The 5th elem works basically the same as a Swinger which is stock on an Uzzi.

I have the DHX Coil on my VPX. Although the shock really doesn't make a difference, since spring rates are spring rates. I weigh 190 pounds, and I have a 500 pound spring with a one to two turns of preload (it's been a while since I set it up).

I think you're likely looking at a 550 pound spring.
