I am thinking of getting a Fox DHX2 Coil Shock for my 2019 Nomad and was wondering what SLS spring I should match with it. I am about 5'11", 160 - 165 lbs with everything, and have a 2019 Nomad.

I'm looking forward to your input/suggestions. Thanks.

I would try a 500 lb spring to start with. I am just over 155 lbs and a 475 spring worked well for me on my N4. I tried a 450 and 500 as well. The 450 required too much preload, and the 500 felt harsh near the end of the stroke.

I was thinking 500 myself but wasn't sure. My weight will go between 145 and 165 and back over the course of a few months so that makes the decision a little tougher. I'll probably end up with a few springs, but I think I'll get a 500 to start.

Thanks for the input.
