Rigid Girdraulics?

That would only affect your sprung weight, not your unsprung
The calculation is complicated, but it affects both sprung and unsprung weight. Items that pivot generally are allocated 50/50 sprung and unsprung weight, like the RFM or swing arm. If you think of the rear springs, they would be 50/50. It is a more difficult calculation with the Girdraulic, but these figures are usually just a guide for lightening. If you think of the front springbox, it would be 50/50, but the spring would most likely be different. In terms of calculating spring rates there can be a lage plus or minus without much fuss.
