Recommended sag at the shock is 17-20 mm for 205x62.5mm shock. Recommended sag at the shock is 16-18 mm for 205x57.5mm shock. This equates to 28-32% sag. Note that because the link is more progressive it sags a larger percent at the wheel than it does at the shock. It is not advised to run more sag than this because the bike will sit in a region of its travel where anti-squat is lower. This link does not require excess amounts of sag to achieve small bump sensitivity. Please set your sag at 30% at the shock and let the link do its work. The spring rates below should get you close to the right sag but you might have to deviate from them here and there.
