Quantcast

Were those Manitou TiSprings fairly accurate ?

    In my search for a used Ti spring I found what I was looking for (#400x2.75)

    Came across this Manitou spring for cheap, I know that its light but I have no way to find out how close to #400 it might be before buying it.

    I think I remember the Manitou springs weren't all that accurate but have no idea how far off it could be...if it is:thumb:

    I went from a 400# steel spring to a Manitou 400# ti spring. I did have to run a touch more preload, but I believe the spring was a hair shorter, tho. It weighed about .7 lb less.
