Yah, I think 51 lb/in will most likely be way too soft. Heres the info on the YSS and the Works Perf. For the Works, you will need to check with them on the part number as the spring rate is cryptic and I don't remember the actual (but im pretty sure its close to the YSS rates).

Sorry for the mixed up font colors - cant seem to change them.

BTW - Im currently spec'ing an Ohlins set of shocks which will be 15" long like the Works Perf. Im going for full adjustability on compr and rebound damping and hyd spring preload. When I know that spring rate, I'll post it too.
