Ok....what it says it means... you get 5 inches at one setting the next is 6 inches and the final one 7.5 inches of travel.
Where as it is stock .. it's 4.5, 5.1 and 6 ( i think those are right)
Yes no problem getting stiffer springs, there are a bunch of after market companies that make them. There will be numbers on the side of the spring like 500x2.0(these numbers are just an example of what you see on the spring) The number berfore the X is the spring weight, and the number after the X is the lenght of the spring. So for example if it says 500x2.0 you'll need something like 550x2.0 or 600x2.0 (again these are just examples) It depends on your weight and riding style as to what you get.
I hope that helps
