    Can anyone describe for me the difference between the Series I Rear springs and the Series II.

    Also what is the difference between the I and II front shocks.

    The SI and S2 springs are similar in looks, the S2 spring is wider and has a higher spring rate.

    I dont think there is any difference in the S1 to S2 front shocks.

    I meant front springs.

    Well since both topic and the question referenced the rear springs, hence the response.

    According to WSM124, the SI and SII springs were the same until mid SII production, where it appears that the spring length was increased, probably for a higher ride height.

    Thanks for the information. I will be needing a set of Series II rear springs for sure but wasn't sure about the front springs.
