I'm am in the process of up grading my rear shocks and thought it would be good to post the spec's of the stock spring rate and total extended length.

To test this I used a press and a 500 plate scale.

First test was to put 35psi of air into a shock and compress it 1/8 inch. This gave me a reading of 86#.From there I zeroed the scale and then compressed the shock 1 inch. This gave me a reading of 312#.

Second test was 0psi of air into the shock and again compressed it a 1/8inch. This gave a reading of 74#. From there I zeroed the scale and compressed the shock 1 inch. This gave me a reading of 269#.

I hope this helps others in the on going quest to know your ride.

From center of eyelet to center of eyelet is 14inch's
