EDIT: I'm right at the soft preload limit of 8.5" of spring length.

I weigh 165 and opted for the lighter spring. It made a world of difference (along with a shock revalve). Even without the revalve you will notice the rear tracks the terrain better. The forks are good for me, but a too stiff rear spring (regardless of preload) will cause too much weight bias to the front forks during suspension action, which may be part of why you are not satisfied with the front.
