Question Replace spring when installing lowering bones?

Apologies for asking so many questions about lowering... If it's OK, would ya'll mind if I ask 1 more?

I'm looking at the PCS lowering links and considering the slam package that includes the spring. Is it worth it? Easy to install or does it open up a whole new problem with taking more parts off?

Thanks everyone.

No need for an apology. Most of us have been where you are now when modifying our bikes. I would recommend the stiffer spring especially since you'll have the shock assembly out. I needed a spring compressor tool for my Roadstar. According to that thread from Scraper, he didn't need the tool for the Roadliner spring. Once you lower the bike, you just have to get use to scraping the bottom pipe. Good luck!
