Glad to be of help, I got a rockshox 500lb spring that would fit onto the vanilla that im not using and got no use for it, as going back to hardtail from a Proflex Beast 98 (which i was going to sale, but no interest)

won't the 500lb spring be softer than my 650lb spring, if anything i would prefer the shock stiffer.
