Default Replacing broken FT spring with axys spring.

Anyone ever install an axsys front track spring in their pro R?

My current spring is broken and I am leaving for a trip in two days. The only spring in stock locally is an axsys one.

I believe it is a bit stiffer but I am 215 lbs. without gear and jump any and all things I see. so I think it'll be OK.

Just trying to figure out how it will affect my ride and handling and if I should lower my spring perch/collar to compensate for the stiffer spring... Or am I overthinking it?


Thanks for any input!

I think I have read of guys doing this. Should be fine. I would start with just a little pre-load
