I have a coil 160mm Rockshox Lyrik which has a medium spring but it is too soft for me so I want to put a firm spring inside it, however I cannot find any 160m firm springs for a Lyrik, I can only find the 170mm ones. The fork came with the bike and it appears that it was especially made for that bike as I cannot find them anywhere else. There is a spacer above the spring to preload it slightly but it is not enough. Would I be able to put the 170mm spring in this fork? Any help would be greatly recieved.

Cheers, Jack.
