Is there any advantage or disadvantage to running a longer or shorter srping. Our dw-9 has the 16"LR spring and wondering what would be affected if we atarted using 13" in it instead since they are easier to come by. Same on the RR thinking of going from 13 to and 11 to gain some more clearance.

A shorter spring will allow the weight to transfer quicker. The tall springs keep the weight transfer down due to the chassis weight center being as high or close to the top of the spring. When you lower the spring top it is like raising your ride height.
