where to get a heavier spring

I need to get a heavier spring for my rear sus. I have to screw it almost halfway to get it stiff enough for me. None of my lbs carry extra springs they said id have to get a new shock, so is there anyplace online i can purchase a stronger spring? I have a noleen sport rear shock on my K2 attack 2. Thanks

Finding a spring for that shock will be difficult! Noleen is tough to find parts for. The company has changed names over the years and I actually do not know if they are still even around. I think they are.

Anyways, the ONLY way you will get a new spring is to order one. I seriously doubt ANY shop will have it in stock. It's a bit of an odd ball item.

My first suggestion is to contact your K2 dealer where you bought your bike. K2 Corporate may be able to help you as well. Go to their website and contact customer service.
