Hi and welcome to the forum, as far as I know your springs/shocks are exactly the same as the other Viking III models. I think that the only model that has different springs is the Viking VI, which has heavier springs on the rear. The spring rates are put up here somewhere for each of the models. Brake squeak has been an issue on some Vikings, if you search BadMonkey's brake squeak fix you will find a thread on how to grease it all up to end the squeak, I'll see if I can find the thread. Yeah and "what's up with that" exactly, brake squeak has been going on since 2014, Yamaha should have fixed it by now!!! Hope that helps!
