You answered your own question. You found the shock on a bike at wallmart...they are crap...well worth the 25$ they would charge if they ever sold them seperate.

Soft isn't always good. It is a rider preference of course but a little stiff is nice

stiffer is much better cause they won't bottom out nearly as easily. of course it's preference how stiff you want it...
