    Cool Coilovers

     



    This is a question just to get a idea what you have on your car. I have a 39 chevy sedan
    3225 lbs, 1517 front, 1711 rear. What spring rate do you have in reference to what my car has.

    I would refer you to Eaton Detroit Spring. They have volumes of information on this subject....

    The ride tech website has a spring rate calculator that works well, but you must measure the front A-arm motion ratio if you have installed an independent front suspension.
