You only have one option. Extra stiff. And in reality they are only meant for 240pound rider. You won't find springs for you specifically.

If you want a stiffer fork at some point, for your weight, you should buy a djer with air preload.

Maybe try www.jensonusa.com or even go to the marzocchi website and call their support line. They should help you.

Cambria Bikes? I think it is was able to get them...and if those springs are meant for a 240lb rider I'd love to see what a 400lb rider spring should feel like, I have yet to bottom mine out.
