And the final image ....  I'd suggest maybe copy the image and then blow it up a wee bit if you cannot make out the numbers.

Thanks.  My email address is on my profile 

Do you have another ? Hotmail bounced both e-mails probably as they're too large.

This may or may not work..

Does anything on there relate to the actual spring compression rates? (sorry for the thread bump,you may get this a lot with me  Grin)

You can work it out from the free length, length under static load and load figures in the first picture.

So for the coupe front,i make that compression of 308mm (12.13") which seems a lot. Under 330kg (726lb).

So that's 60lb/in springs for the front. That seems weak,i could compress that by 3" just by standing on it. Or i on the wrong track?

Compression of 208 mm I make it, think that's where you went wrong.

Betaboyz lowering springs, 30mm lower, 25% uprated, must be around 111 lb/in.

LOL....Oh yeah! Grin

Still,88 is weaker than i expected. I may go for some home made coilovers actually as the springs on mine are already cut and are still too squishy.
