Hello all,
Need to replace the springs on a 2012 Firebird X9 model. It came with a 170 mm Fox 36 VAN R fork.

Can I just buy the standard replacement springs for the Fox 36 180 mm VAN R fork?

185 lb guy (no gear) bottoming out the standard blue springs. Need to get some green ones...

The fork has been limited to 170 mm of travel. Does this change the length of the spring?

As far as I know you just order the standard springs. I can ask our inside guy just to be sure though (I'll make a note to do that tomorrow)...

Done and done! Checked w. Fox, the fork does in fact use the same spring. It just has a different plunger asembly.
