So I'm going to use a narrow glide 12" over stock springer front end on my rigid build and I called DNA and they said they don't make them anymore and I heard aren't that good. So I have two questions.

1. Who else makes quality 12" over springer that won't pogo as much(I've heard Denver's are notoriously pogo-ey)

2. What are some ways to prevent it from pogo-ing as much besides getting a damper? Should i tighten the to crown nuts on the top more or just buy stiffer top and lower springs? If it helps, the rigid frame i'm using has a little bit of rake, I think, but from what I can tell the front of the frame is still going to sit pretty high instead of level.

To your first question, NO and to your second, Nothing, No, It won't help and that's not the way to set up a front end...

....and to your third question, yes, springers destroy neck bearings at a faster rate.
