    Default Ohlins piggy back

    Is there a way to get a digressive stack on the ohlins piggy back we’re the threads isn’t all the way down the body? Like do a 6 inch or shorter too spring and do soft too and bottom springs

    Yes, like you said, you have to have a short enough top spring. It isn't ideal, but depending on what you are trying to do, there are combos that can work.

    I was thinking 90 over 125 or 150 175 but if you can’t get that soft could you benift just as much with a 50lb single spring

    The idea of the digressive stack is to get your extended load right and also have the light spring rate you want. Those 2 things are what you need to get right, regardless of how you do it. Ride load is just to show the tech inspector measurements. You don't race there, so it's meaningless.

    Can you run a shorter bottom spring to compensate for the shock body not being threaded all way or would you just need to run softer springs overall. Or would it just be easier to do soft single linear spring and be done and adjust extend load that way

    If you want to be able to adjust the extended load with the nut, you need a short enough top spring. Bottom spring doesn't matter. If you want to keep it simple, yes, just put a single spring on there, set your extended load and just use a bumpstop to set your ride height.

    I could do a 90/100 that be a 47lb rate overall and do maybe a 8 top 10 bottom if it would have enough threads

    I run old school ohlins with 2 100 lb springs. 8 and 12. The top spring is so soft it pretty much coil binds at ride height.

    Where’s the lock out nut at top or bottom or none
