    I have a boot'r right now that has about 40+ percent sag on my vivid coil. I assume this means i need a new spring. How do I measure this and where do I get one?

    Go here; http://www.tftunedshox.com/info/spring_calculator.aspx and input data, the calculator will spit out a couple of spring options. Go to a bike shop and buy a spring in that weight for your model of shock. If you don't have a local bike shop that can help you, there are umpteen online retailers who can.

    daydreaming about a new rhythm line.....
    seems like the easy way would be to just look at your current spring for the spring rate and then just get the next heavier rate available. 5 more seconds of research on the internet will tell you hundreds of places to get said spring...
