I not sure what is up with you quote on springs but even that seems wrong as they don’t sell for this much. You be better of calling a KW authorized dealer or talk to Tom Edge at KW.

As for springs, you have to pick your won which is the whole purpose of 60 mm springs. The Swift spring sell for about 85.00 to 100.00 each. The helper springs are about 1/3 less.

As for Vorshlag, they are the wrong stack height so live with the junk they give you for lower cost or buy the correct parts. The KW camber plates are a much better design than the Vorshlag and the stack height is correct and they don’t make noise. One fits correctly the other doesn’t.

Orb, could you give some more information on what specifically (part numbers and manufacturers) one would need to go from progressive springs to the linear springs (Swift Springs?)?
