I never said that as i was talking about dynamic spring rates which are a very different thing to static spring rates.While in motion a shock that has more compression damping will increase the dynamic (wheel)spring rate as the suspension is in motion being compressed as it will provide more resistance to the spring being compressed over its travel.A shock setup change can often result in what amount of wheel travel is being used in cornering or bumps.If you soften a shock in compression you will always use more wheel travel than a harder setup.Then we could start a discussion on the using bump rubbers as part of the springing package.
