Beyond that and you are adding preload. Posted 6 years ago piemannMemberMagic, thanks. Posted 6 years ago piemannMemberI’ve just replaced the air shock (RP2) on my Blur LT with a coil shock (DHX5) for my imminent trip to the Alps. I’ve replaced the spring with the correct one for my fat *ss.My question is, when installing the new spring, how tight should it be before I am actually adding preload?Or, when does installation of the spring stop and preload adjustment begin?Thanks Iain Posted 6 years ago Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total)The topic ‘Coil shock advice please’ is closed to new replies.
