I want to replace the spring on the rear shock of my Schwinn 4 Banger(pictured below) for a slightly longer one.
I need a spring that fits a shock with either a 1.75" or 2" stroke (the spring currently fitted is for a 1.5" stroke), as I want to raise the rear end ride height a little bit (and tighten up the infamously slack head angle!), without swapping the shock out.
I don't know what spring rate I need yet as I haven't got the bike. I've asked the previous owner to let me know what spring is currently fitted, and what weight he is, so I'll have an idea as soon as he gets back to me.
For now though, if you could just reply to this thread to let me know what you've got, that would be great
I don't think it matters what the spring is from, as I'm pretty sure that Fox/Rockshock springs are interchangeable - it's just the compression plates etc on the shock body itself which differ.
Picture of the shock, for reference. As you can see, I can afford to fit a longer spring as I have plenty of thread on the shock body for the trunnion to screw on to.
