springs for nose dive

I drop the rear a bit if im going to be on a loose gravel road for a while, makes it less squirrely. I think related to the steep fork angle?
Dave, Do you happen to know the part number of the '07 fork springs you ordered. I'm a new Uly owner and so far the seat height and the nose dive are the only issues I have. I have the seat hieght under control and now I'm trying to get the nose dive under control.
