    help! older rock shox springs?

    I'm looking for a replacement coil spring for a 2001 Rock Shox Psylo SL. I've had no luck after contacting SRAM/RockShox directly and nearly every major dealer/distributor of older Rock Shox parts that I can find Does anyone out there know of any place that may still have springs for a fork that old in stock, or even the U-turn upgrade kit? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I had to buy new shocks after running into this same problem. I searched high and low for a stiff set of springs for my older Judy's, with no avail. Try a google search and ebay.

    I used to work for Eibach Springs and we made springs for older Judys for Mountain Speed and I had a huge box of these in my garage.... I trashed them when I moved... Figures I could use them AFTER I trash them!!

    Neccros, thanks for the tip, I'll give them a call tomorrow. I've thought about looking for an aftermarket spring with the right specs, any thoughts?

    I'm looking for orange (aka 52 lbs/in). I recently decided to service the fork myself and realized that the standard red one (59 lbs/in) is in there, which is definitely too heavy for me.
