C clips all depends on how much your dropping if your going the full 2 its none and just the big and small spring. If your going one Its just the big spring and 2 c clips i believe

What up man! I used 5 clips on each side of my lowered mono tubes and 20 Wt. Fork oil. I weight 315 and I two up a lot so I like the front end a little firm. Don't forget the bottoming cups in the forks if you go with the lowering kit
