The metric frame is alittle smaller and lighter than a standard frame. It uses metric sized nuts, bolts and fittings. The significant set-up difference is the distance between the lower ball joint and the spring pocket in the a- frame. This distance is longer in the metric, thus the need for a higher spring rate compared to a standard frame to achive the same rate at the tire.
