I have a 2019 yeti sb 150. Just bought a DHX2 rear coil shock. I weigh 185lbs and was told to buy 450/ 2.9 in/ 74MM SPRING. I noticed that I had to adjust preload to get proper sag. But spring feels real stiff. I was told to get a progressive spring 450/ 550 to set pre- load correctly and won’t bottom out on big hits. Any suggestion on type of spring I need ?

I weigh 154lbs and run a 400lb spring on an ext storia shock. Shock was setup by mojo rising and is spot on. Not sure if this info will help you.

Im about 180 with gear on running a 450sls spring on mine but shorter 2.4in spring . I've cased some things hard last trip to whistler and never had bad bottom outs , I'd maybe look at a heavier spring or like you said progressive. I haven't had issues with mine so 450 seems to work for now.

Only had a handful of rides with coil once I have more time on it I'll make a judgement call on progressive or just go back to a air shock

If this is your first time on a coil it will take a few rides to dial in the shock and spring combo, combined with matching the fork to shock, went thru 4 different coils to find the right rate for me. Sag should only be a few turns (2) from the spring free and rattling loose. Sag with a coil will be slightly different from air. As for a progressive spring, that should be last resort. You have many options on a dhx2, high and low speed comp/rebound use them.

Dont worry about rate, if you think it too hard then it is.
