    Default Help with spring rates please.

    Hi Guys and Gals;

    Mods, please can you leave this post here as it is general regarding spring rates rather than modifying, thanks

    I'm looking to replace my springs as one has snapped (on a 2007 2.8 V6 Turbo) and I can't find many listed to fit.

    I had a look at the sticker inside the door shut on mine and there are 4 weights given so not too sure which to use.

    From top to bottom, they're as follows:-

    2080 kg
    3680 kg
    1-1120 kg
    2-0985 kg

    I'm guessing the first is the overall kerb weight, the second is maximum laden and are the other 2 the axle weights, 1 being front and 2 being the rear?

    So, can I use a spring rate for front axle of upto 1000kg or should I go for the over 1000kg rated spring?

    I guess 60kg is a fair bit but I don't want it to sit too low or too high at the front if I opt for one or the other.

    Is there a specialist supplier who can help with actual weights and spring rates and recommend and supply them?

    Cheers, Kevin

    Does nobody know what these weights mean?

    I can't imagine I'm the first to replace my springs
