Do you get rid of the stock steel spacers and just put in the progressive plastic ones? You don't use both, I assume. Does the amount of recommended fork oil change, or is it still 190mm from top? Same 10w20, or something different? Is it true I won't need to air them up, or will they still require air?

Anyone installed these springs? I'm looking forward to some front end improvement. I also have a Galfer stainless brake line and EBC shoes to install. Any advice on what type brake fluid? 4 or 5?
Any pointers?
