Fellas,

I've decided that the price for the shock and spring is bad and wrong (badong). I can't afford a 900 dollar shock and spring, and it looks as though there are no other fully adjustable replacements. A replacement stocker unit, according to my dealer, would be 800 dollars. . . Still too much. Fox used to make a shock, but not anymore.

Anyhows, I've heard of peeps using an ohlins spring to revive their preload -attaching it to the stock shock. Anyone know the part # or have any suggestions?

Ducvet,

I have the sachs unit. I weigh 220 with gear.

So it is possible to buy and use just the spring without the expensive shock?

A few people including myself are buying take-offs from SBK off ebay. I picked-up a dual adjust Showa from a 996 to replace my stock Sachs. Paid I think less than $40. I think the crankcase reservoir needs to be removed to install it but that's about it. I don't know about the spring rate though I am going to use my stock spring.

sorry on the late reply
ohlins springs will fit on the boge shock
look for one that is the same starting length as yours(no preload) probably a 10.5kgm or an 11.0kgm
10.5 if your weight was with gear on 11.0kgm it that was a "buck nekid " weight 15mm preload on either as a starting point
best of luck

Will ohlins distributers sell just the spring? I was kinda under the impression that you had to buy it used to get just the spring.

Also, is taking the stocker spring off the shock (and putting a new one back on) a process that requires any special fabrication? Or does it just pop on there real easy-like?

If you guys know any good place that actually sells these things without the shock, and can match it up with the boges/sachs shock on the S4, please let me know!
