Hello guys,
I have some evil thoughts about cutting in half the rebound spring or even more - ordering custom ones to be made if all is OK with the shorter length.
I am talking about part number 10 here

Now this is because I have good sag set up now, but when I put fork emulators they will add some preload.
My guess is that if I do this, sag will remain the same since preload of the spring will remain the same:
Am I correct about this? The damping rod will go into the fork leg with lets say 10mm more and thus 10mm less preload on the spring.
Since the rebound spring works only in the most decompressed state of the fork - will changing it cause any issues?

Cheers!

The rebound spring will not change preload or give any extra space for the new valving.
They rattle about at the bottom of the damper rod and only start to compress at full fork extension

Thank you for the answer :)
My guess was that with the shorter rebound spring, the damping rod would sit some distance down and there would be more space for the spring above it.
