You're kidding? Why make a high end, adjustable cartridge and leave out the most critical part of suspension. Preload does not sufficiently compensate for weight. Proper spring rate is just as important. With inadequate spring rate, you'll bottom out much easier when sag is properly set.

Maybe I'll just get the front resprung and replace the rear shock (I don't think it can be resprung?)
