Racetech has a spring rate calculator. Enter your bike, weight, skill level and theyll tell you. This calculator is on their website. I used it for my shock and forks and i like it. I believe the total for springs was $250

Get a progressive rear spring. Need your weight, height, and type of riding to get you a correct rate.

Unless your bike has the stock spring and someone has the correct spring rate for it, you will not be able to determine what spring is better/lighter unless you get your measured.
