just bought a new rear shock, vanilla RL, ( as a back-up to the AVA sleeved float RL ) realised it will probably need a different spring.
I'm in the order of 190 lbs dressed for success or is it excess?
What spring / spring rate would you guys recommend for me?

Go with a 650 lb spring. I think that is what I ran on my Vanilla. I am 190 as well.

650 or 700

I'm between 195 and 203 lbs depending on season. On my large size Tracer set up fpr XC trail riding I'm using a 700 on my Vanilla-R and never (or rarely) bottom it.

If you like a firm suspenion for frequent 3 foot drops to flat a 750 would be quite firm for you. 750 feels too firm for more my XC use.
