I would like to compile the different rates of what setups are available on the market. So lowering spring rates, coilover spring rates, etc. I know I found a good list a while back, but I'm not sure if that is accurate anymore or if many of the setups are still sold.

I will also be going into how to pick spring rates, what goes into the selection and how to balance the car with them.

Adding to this as this will help with the information.

That link was probably moved here: http://www.mkiiitech.com/forum/showthread.php?t=116


My post in that thread also has dead links. The current links are:

lower spring rates:

coilover spring rates:
http://www.geocities.com/ma71supraturbo/MK3Tech/Coilovers.html


Note that that info is from ~2004-2005. I also only used the spring rates for the 89+ stock springs...
