Sorry can't help you with that.
But where did you get the lowering kit from?
Thanks.

Have you set the spring sag for your weight yet?

Used CRF Honda rear springs will fit the DRZ because they use the same Showa shock. The stock spring is a 5.3 kg/mm on the drz 400/400E good to about 175 lbs. You can find some stock CRF450R springs on Ebay that are 5.5Kg/mm and would be good for about 200-220 lb person. 09 - on Hondas do not use Showa shock so won't fit. I found a used Factory Connection 5.6 kg/mm spring for $56 including shipping and a 5.5 KG/mm Honda spring for $40 w/shipping. One for my DRZ and the Other for my CRF 250 X ( Xs will fit DRZ also. Go to RaceTech site and check out the spring rate calculator for front/rear springs fronts should be about .48 kg/mm for 200 - 220 (stock is .43 kg/mm)
