Anyone know the spring rate for the front struts of a EA81 4wd.

You can raise the rate of the front springs by compressing them (raise front,) I think. PRELOAD?

I'll check for sure.

Thanks soobme, I'm playing with some crazy ideas at the moment. Drawings may come later.

gravelRX, preload dose not have an affect on spring rate. In this case if the spring is compress 1 inch and you want to compress it to 2 inches you have to apply 134lbs, to go from 2 inches to 3 inches it's just another 134lbs.
