For your weight I'd suggest a 6.0kg/mm rear spring matched to 0.50kg/mm front springs.

Add Racetech valves (front and rear) if you have the coin... Highly recommended and they come with DVD howtos clearly explaining every step of the process.

As the rear is shagged I'd also have a very close look at the front and renew all of the wear parts.

It gets very expensive if suspension is allowed to wear beyond its limits for the sake of a few bucks in small parts.

Thanks for the wisdom. I will check on a rebuild. I don't think it is shot just tired. Thanks for the tips on the front as well.
When I'm dead, I sure don't want people thinking I never really lived. Hell with that.

Set tall in the saddle, hold your head up high...Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky....Live like you aint afraid to die. And don't be scared, just enjoy the ride. "Chris Ledoux"
