    Yep, true - I was planning on adding columns for that later though at this point I am only aware of a few of the ratings - if you know of a place to find this info, let me know. Once again, the fronts are mostly similar so there is definite useful info there either way. The rears are another story.

    so, what exactly do you do for rear springs then. I'm thinking of getting some stiffer springs for autox, and almost bought the motorsport c springs till I found this

    I'm following Kingcars lead and will hopefully be installing my front springs this week....or next week at the latest....I hope. I really am tired of the 4x4 look up front. For the fun of it,I'll measure the distance between the tire and fender.I think it's about 2 feet.LOL.

    I have sn-95 coil-overs/tublar lower control arms on the front. It looks like it droped about an inch, maybe a tad more. Don't know for sure as I didn't do a before or after measurement.

    didnt Eric from CC.net say that T/C front springs can lower a V8 car and have a rate like 450 or so?
