I recently acquired a set of FOX 36 VAN 2010 R, and need to swap out the x soft spring i have for an x firm.

After several searches of the interweb i see that the part i need (039-05-054) is discontinued which ran from 2005-2010

What options do i have:

Can i fit a 2011 onwards 160mm yellow spring (it has a different part number)
Are there any third party manufacturers of fox springs?
Anyone any ideas?

A shame not to use them, as they complete my current ride and my wife has banned me from spending any more money except on her and the kids... help is gratefully appreciated.

Thanks

Is it worth having a chat to https://www.tftuned.com/ ? I was searching for springs for some Duke's and had a load of issues trying to find stuff to fit (because they have an odd spring size). While I was trying lots of people recommended TF Tuned, so might be worth popping them a mail :)
