Getting the front and rear suspension working together is critical to overall handling. This is so tru that a good suspension that is balanced is better than works suspension that isnt. Due to the link your rear suspension has rising rate compression damping. The Merge RRS fork spring does a similar thing in the forks. On paper the result is a theoretical improvment in front and rear "balance". I have tested this product and found a small but noticable improvment in both stability and plushness . Difficult attrabutes to acheve together at the same time.
