Progressive vs stock fork springs

Post by oldmopars » Fri Jun 28, 2013 11:05 pm

How do I know what fork springs I have on my bike. The PO upgraded tons of stuff on this bike, so it is possible. I have the springs out right now while doing fork seals. There two springs, the short and the long one. The long one is not a consistent wind. Anyone know how to know, any pictures?

Progressive springs are one piece. Just go to e-bay for pictures. ... &_from=R40

Ditto Dingdongs reply. I replaced the springs in my `82 this winter with Progressives and am completely satisfied. Actually i don`t HAVE to put air in, and they are the same length as mother Honda`s 2 piece design. I ordered from,$99.00 including shipping and got them from Ca. in 4 days!
