Default Tougher Shocks/Springs for Slash

Can anyone recommend a tougher (heavier) shock spring for the Slash?

And, if I put Big-Bore shocks on, does it take a different kind of spring?

Sorry for the newbie questions....

Not sure I want to start hacking on my Slash just yet, seeing that I just ordered it. I was just wondering if they make a stronger spring????

Spring Swap Research:

For anyone who is interested I did a quick comparison to the different types of shock springs available from Traxxas that will fit the Slash.

Orig. Equipment:

Truck - Part Number - (Unsprung Measurements)
SLASH - F/TRA5857 (56mm) R/TRA5858 (69.5 mm)
RUSTLER - F/TRA2485A (55mm) R/TRA3757X (81mm)
E-MAXX - F/TRA4957 (82.55mm) R/TRA4957 (82.55mm)
STAMPEDE - F/TRA3758X (63.5mm) R/TRA3757X (81mm)

The following are Progressive Rate Springs:

TRA5857 & TRA5858, along with TRA4957R (76.2mm)

So if you want to change out the progressive type spring with the closest match; from the table above it appears the closest match to the stock Slash spring is: TRA2458A (front) & TRA3757X (rear)
