Hopefully this isn't too far OT for this forum!

I know a limited amount about rear shocks - I need to upgrade the one on my 2001 San Andreas. What size do I need? Not really sure how to measure these things when you talk about eye-2-eye, stroke, etc. Would the bushes from the old shock fit on any replacement shock i.e. is it a standard eye diameter?

I currently have a 650 lbs spring (I think) which seems to be too soft for me (13st) - what would be a good uprating for that? i.e. how much should I go up by? If I stick with the Aftershock (stock San Andreas OEM) what spring dimensions do I need?

You could try visiting the tftuned website which has a fair amount of techy info and a spring rate calculator to use if you can get your head round the aforementioned techy-poo. Failing that you can ring them for advice, i've used them for advice before and they are very friendly and helpful people.
