Hi, new member long time rider...

During my search for a heavier shock spring replacements I've noticed that Hyperpro actually offers two versions of the +20mm shock spring....(as well as the stand height spring and the lowering spring, for a total of four (4) offerings)

Part #SP-HO10-SSB032
Hyperpro - Shock Spring Kit (Purple other colours available) (Recommended Kit - Raises height by 20mm & eliminates excess sag)

AND

Part #SP-HO10-SSB035
Hyperpro - Shock Spring Kit (Purple other colours available) (Rasies Ride Height By 20mm - For Use With Luggage/Heavy Loads)

I've contacted both the manufacturer, and one of their main sellers by email. Each recommends a different spring for my application . Go figure? Wish they'd have engineers answering tech questions instead of salesmen. The touratech guy I spoke with says the SSB032 comes with their "Heavy duty " kit.
Other than the minor difference in the wording of the two descriptions....
My question is:
Would anyone have specific information or experience on the differences between these two +20mm springs? If you do share could you please indicate which of the two you have or are referring to. Thanks so much.

as a side note:
I'm riding a DCT, skid plate ,crash bars, centerstand, panniers. raised bars lower pegs
Tall guy,100Kg with gear, usually 10-15 kg in the panniers, Experienced rider, 75% paved roads, 25% fast gravel roads, forest roads and the occasional trail/single track. Nothing terribly hardcore.
very occasional 55kg passenger

yes...and I get the standard quotes from the literature, or a recommendation. Thats why I'm asking here for real world experience....like I'm sure many of you may have. Like I said earlier "Wish they'd have engineers answering tech questions instead of salesmen"
If The manufacturer and their retailer would have suggested the same spring, I wouldn't have needed to ask the question. Unfortunately (for me) they each recommended a different one.... :(
