Ordered just a spring from Cogent rather than send the shock for service. Thanks for the advice.

Finally mounted up the Ohlins & today is the first ride. Will ride a particular route with about 5 miles of rough road which should give me an overall impression. Not set sag yet so I know that's important also.

Should be a number stamped on the spring and you can decode it to see what spring rate it is... if it's close, you can play with the preload to get a good sag number.
Damping can be adjusted and you'll have to play with that over time.

IIRC Wilbers is the only rear shock that the body is steel not aluminum. Some say the steel bore will last longer if you go to long between rebuilds.
