I ordered 5 inch springs arriving tomorrow. MR says they are 5 but they measure 4 1/4 an does sit a bit too low for me. Trying to get higher as my 245 lbs take up most of the spring action. As for space I just pushed down some wires beforehand and the fit was fine after that.
Sometimes we come across a deal we just cannot pass up even if it is not the color we prefer or other details are missing and then we start with a vision of what we can make of it.. So if I say I bought a bike with 550 miles on it with thousands of upgrades to start and it is already paid for, you can probably figure out which category I am in.
