    Look for a few people to be doing small spring rates for next year. They will cost more (even in steel), but will actually be dynoed to be within 2% or 3% of the printed rate.

    k9 industries has offered steel springs in 25lb increments for at least 2 or 3 years.

    didn't k9 also do "lighter" steel springs? That would be an awesome in between for weight and cost...I'd gladly spend an extra $20 to save 50g vs. $200 for 150g.

    they did do a higher quality steel spring that was lighter. but i remember it was something like $90 USD. at which point i'd probably opt to spend the extra $$ and get a ti spring

    Now you're just panicking because you are making such ancient references. That's right. The Jeep was a 2004. and I barely had it a year.

    You are getting OLD! Deal with it. (speaking of, I trust you wished Luc a happy birthday?)

    Ancient was the POINT! Ancient like when you used to ride DH and had a reason to post here.

    I don't panic, I stab.

    And of course I did. Like 3 seconds ago. (thanks)

    Shut the hell up because 'anything', in the English language, equates to, anything. Way to be a smartass, but you kinda have to be smart in the first place ;) :rolleyes::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Do me a favor. When you read a post by me making an obviously broad sweeping generalization about an entire country, just don't read it. It's not for you. Go stare at a lollipop or something. It'll make more sense.
