Hey everyone, been awhile since I've been on here but I've been spending my summer very being very busy! :mrgreen:
Anyways, I'm leaving tomorrow morning for a 6 day trip to California and back (I know it's short notice but hey why not), and I decided to finally put in my 0.95 Sonic Springs I bought off of someone on here last night. I followed the instructions, and put back in order, spring, washer, spacer, spring, and then the cap threaded back in. I buttoned everything back up and left the preload adjusters all the way up or at 0 and checked my sag and after multiple checks i was right about 33-35 mm total sag. I was shooting for 40~ish because that is what i had set on my stock front springs and also what about my Wee should be.
So some background, last year i flushed the forks and upgraded to 15wt fork oil at about 150mm, and other than that my front suspension is stock (besides the springs and spacers now). Also I did measure the PVC spacers supplied with my springs and they are 4.25 inches (checked with calipers)
One thing I noticed is that the instructions call for one extra washer between my preload adjuster and the spacer than what I had before?
So my question to those of you who know suspension out there is, what should i do? My options as i see them are:
1.) Leave as is and see what happens?
2.) Take caps back off, pull out pvc spacer and put back in stock spacer (stock is slightly shorter than pvc one)?
3.) Take out just the extra washer that was between the spacer and preload adjuster?
4.) Put it back to stock for my trip and fiddle with it later when I get back?
Right now I'm leaning towards #2 to try and reduce the preload by putting back in the stock spacer, luckily it only takes me about 30 minutes or less to open the top of my shocks up.
