Default Rear spring

As we know the 8 ball models are single seaters but do they use a universal rear suspension as the other models which carry passengers. I find rear suspension quite hard and was wondering if anyone has changed rear springs for more comfort and what to. I weigh about 14 stone kitted up,so what would be the ideal spring for me?

Search around here for Progressive shocks. Lloydz carries them and apparently they're a lot better. The Vegas suspension isn't the best, suitable, but not the best. Maybe not even suitable for what you are describing. Another member on here is installing a Progressive...on a Hammer if I'm not mistaken, I'm waiting for his review both on the installation and performance.
