      I have took this from the Gaz coilover thread

      The spring rate was the technical area that took the most time to develop. After trying numerous different set ups and ratios across a range of UK circuits we ended up using 425 Lbs on the front and a dual rated spring on the rear. The R26R has 220Lbs on the front and rear

      Seemed low to me also Tim. Figures came from Eibach this afternoon.

      I guess it needs to be factored in that some are linear and some are progressive so some of the progressive types may be stating the maximum spring rate, whereas the actual part of the spring used in general day to day driving has a much lower spring rate. I guess this is the case when comparing the progressive R26 springs with the linear eibachs?

      R26R's aren't 220lb's. At least not the maximum spring rate. Will amend Gaz rear value.

      Looking at this pic, it's the front spring on the Gaz which is dual rated (progressive). The springs in the pics are next to the wrong dampers respectively.
