Why are the new springs from progressive 1 inch small the the old origanal springs. Will it lower the front a little. And why the 1 inch difference.
They seemed to slightly raise my bike as well. Yes they are a bit shorter, but they are not as spongy as the stockers and do not compress as much from the weight of the bike. Hope this helps.Mountain man said:Yes i measured the old springs and they measure at 19 inches and new ones at 18 inches. I`m not a math wizzard but if the new springs ar 1 inch shorter then wouldn`t it make the bike sit lower and not the same height. they say to use the same spacer that was in the bike. jsut wondering b4 i put em in tomorrow.What if i put in new spacer and made up the 1 inch difference?would it matter?The directions call for using old spacer..
