Not sure if this is what you're looking for or not.

After rereading the thread sounds like you already replaced the stock shock but I'll leave the below information for others just in case.

I think the 05 spring was a bit softer and better valving than the 04 but not 100%. I think the stock spring is something around 530 pounds. I think you would want to start with setting sag first and then see how it feels. If you have already done that and still don't like it from what others have said you should just have the stock shock revalved/resprung by DK racing or one of the other suspension companies. Just respringing the stock shock probably won't get you the results you are looking for since it's not only a spring issue.

Just my opinion.

I just swapped to a first gen busa shock and love it. I've heard of people swapping just the spring too. Otherwise racetech will sell you a spring, I believe they're around $100.

I have an Eibach spring on Ebay right now for sale if you are interested. I believe the spring is rated for 1100lbs. I ran it on my 08 with about a 6" to 7" stretch and it felt good.
