The 510's won't fit without way too much preload being put on them. The one's Mx-Tech has on the shelf are 495mm, and there is plenty of room for that. I just hope the wire diameter isn't too large.
I put a pair of .46 springs in, I ordered from Enduro Engineering and didn't notice the difference. They seem to be working ok, so I'm not going to take them out.
