You need to include spring rates here....that's a very important piece of information to those buying springs.

What I am going to do instead is create a topic for each item that will contain more information, such as user reviews, etc. If I try to put any more information into the list then it wraps and screws up the formatting. Grrr. Maybe I will ditch the best price thing and include spring rates instead...

Or get rid of part number or something. A separate thread for each would be really cool.

Definitely appreciate gathering this info!

Sweet! Our yellow springs are 250 lbs/in front and rear. (aka 4.46 kg/mm)

Not all will offer equal rates front and rear, so they really require separate columns. Price is not a good thing to try and keep up to date on a static page anyway.

Thanks for this thread Darren.

A tip you might want to add to the post for those wanting to convert lbs/in to kg/mm and vice-versa. Just ask Google.

For example, the RaceComp Springs: Google "250 lbs/in to kg/mm" = 4.46kg/mm

how about springs that raise the car about an inch and have a softer rate?

i wouldn't mind paying 300 or so bucks for a set of springs i can throw on in the winter rather than 3000 coilovers.

Good idea, I am still working out the kinks. I'll fix this soon, but too busy driving my car today to worry about it.

I don't know why'd you want to do this, stock the car has plenty of ground clearance for winter. BUT you don't need different springs to go taller, just some 1" poly spring spacers... The 4X4 world has been doing this for decades to level out vehicles and even gain some extra lift. I think you can even get spacers like this for some Subaru cars with "saggy but syndrome."
