    Yes, you can buy another spring that has a higher weight rating (example: 600lb spring). But im not sure if you will be able to find one that fits for an RST shock.

    Try calling the manufacturer of the existing shock for a firmer spring.

    Ok, Maelstrom. Sorry that I didn't make my grammer flawless. Anyways, I think that shock on my bike a 22. So like, what are some brands that sell the outer spring?

    Hey,
    I have an 850lb rear shock. To large for me so i switched it for a 650lb shock. Contact me if you want some info.
