    Rear Shocks: What size should I buy.

    Hi, I have an Iron Horse SGS-Pro DH and just blew the rear shock. The shock size is 8.75 x 2.75.

    Bent Ti Spring on One End

    While installing my Obtanium Ti spring onto my new frame/shock, I just realized one end of the spring is bent. Is it a real problem if the spring is not seating around (touching) 100% in the bushings?

    I have an 07 Specialized Sworks Enduro with a DHX 5.0 Air. I want to switch to a DHX coil or something similar but when I checked the Fox website I can't find a coil shock the same as my air shock[8.75 x 2.5]. I am concerned about what will be affected if I don't get a shock the exact right...
