Re: spring rates for various springs

Yea it's honestly the only downside to them. I eventually wanna get some 10k's for the rear. Oh btw, they have no dampening adjustability if that matters.

Re: spring rates for various springs

10kg would probably be to much. get yourself a progress bar. the springs i have in the back are 7kg the progress bar seemed to make it near perfect. i had it set to the stiffest setting but i actually had oversteer problems with just light braking. so i set it to the middle setting and now it's damn near spot on to where i'm comfortable with it. i'd like something just SLIGHTLY stiffer. like maybe a 7.3 or 7.4. i wish i knew what the effective spring rates are with the front and rear sway bars. and especially how much each adjustment adds or subtracts to the spring rates on the progress bar.

Re: spring rates for various springs

I do have a Progress rear sway and its still not quite stiff enough for me. I would say at least 8k in the rear, but I'm thinking more like a 10k would be best for my situation.
