My rear spring has about 5mm of play to the top absorber, is this okay?

Recommended Posts

As you can see in the picture, my sag is about 60mm off. I want trying to see how much I could get out of the spring but it is no longer touching the top plate. My sag is still lowering but I’m not sure if this will cause damage while riding or I should switch to a softer spring to prevent it.

 

Thanks in advance.

As a general rule, the shock spring should be preloaded at a minimum 4mm. (never loose even with the bike on a stand)

Sounds like you have the wrong spring rate for your weight (too stiff), being 60mm off is huge.
