I've been holding off buying a spring as i had decided the rear shock on my Dirtworks needed to be 215mm rather than the 200mm item that she is currently wearing.
I've sourced a shock now but it has no spring with it.

I'm a tickle under 14 stone and by no means a downhill ripper :lol: so can someone tell me what spring weight i should go for please?

*Forgot to ask this earlier.
The new shock has no spring fitted so as its 15mm longer i-i do i need a spring thats 15mm longer or doesn't it work like that?
