Rear spring needed. 550-650lb for a 2.75" stroke shock. Can swap for a red 450lb one in red if prefered.

Ta :D

Could be perfect! Any chance you can just measure the length and width of the spring for me please! Its going on a Rock Shox shock and I'm just checking that the Manitou won't be 2 big.. :D

When you say a rockshox shock, do you mean a vivid? If so, aren't they supposed to run rockshox springs too?? Because of the collar etc?

Ill have a measure later when I get home though to see if it'll work

I'm pretty sure they are too short a spring. This shock has a 2.75" stroke and I don't think the LTS ever had a shock that big..

Thanks though!!

Not a vivid. Its and old Long stroke Coupe Deluxe shock. Check out page 6 of my thread, that's the shock! The little black spring I had before is a Manitou so yours may fit:
