Co-efficients? Looks to me like standard spring rate for non-progressive coil spring. Should just need to look at the "lbs/in" figure and compare to the lbs/in rating of other springs.

Am I missing something? (again :rolleyes: )

you really won't want them if they are stiffer. I've got the stiffer RX front springs on my ea81 struts (to hold the added weight of my bumper/winch) and they force the axle to ride at max extension basically. down travel is decreased and up travel is considerable stiffer. expect to lose axles regularly.

i also have the rx springs on my ea-81 struts,.but they are coupled with coupe struts and afford a little less stress on the axles.these are kyb struts, not stock extended struts.

what sort of car are the other springs from? someone somewhere will have the stats for them. they might be nice for people who put in larger engines and/or larger custom front bumpers.
