Just switched my spring on the rear of my C10.
I have had a C14 shock on it about 6k or so miles.

According to Race Tech and others I
needed a 800 lb spring for my weight.

Used a shop press. Seemed easy enough. Placed shock in press upside down.
Compressed spring, cleaned all parts, switched on the Eibach. Compressed again and done.

Hope to get it in bike tomorrow. Maybe do the set of sag, excetra too!

Oh,
They had lowest price of all vendors on the spring.

That site appears to be all automotive?

Ride safe, Ted
Yes and no. Plug in the size of spring you need and they do have better prices on them than any found. Shipping is much cheaper too.
I needed 8' x 2.25 @ 800lb spring. Search came back with Eibach in that size. Yes it does fit some model of car coilover too.


0800-225-0800
$62.90+ ship
Hope that helps!

Been more than a few miles now on standard, substandard and interstate roads,.
Would be of the opinion for a C10 with a C14 shock I could have gone with a heavier spring.

Saying so because I do not have ability to set sag within spec with black adjustment knob.
Full hard with no clicks still will not produce zag in spec.
Two clicks from hard used on very good roads.
Am using 6 clicks from hard on adjuster for all road conditions generally

Feel heavier spring to get sag in spec would allow for adjuster to be better positioned mid range for
better rear suspension adjusting.

Might do this at latter date.
