Ksport GT lowering SPRINGS: What are Spring rates??????

Purchased the KSport GT lowering springs.

Anyone know the Spring rates of these?
Progressive, but I wonder if they still have a spec.?

No personal experience with either of these. I have been quite pleased with the handling of my dropzones, surprisingly. I have heard a couple good reviews on the handling of the k-sport from a couple friends and a few bad reviews on the handling on the megans on the org. Don't have any issue on sag but all lowering springs sag after a couple years from what I hear.

Thanks. I was thinking about just going with the Ksports since megan doesn't offer anything else spring or strut wise as Ksport has a coilover sort of like the BCs. Seems a bit more comforting to me. The car is my brother's, I'm just trying to build him a descent looking, good running car. It's his first one.

You'd have to call them, but I very highly doubt they'll give you a solid number on a progressive spring.

Thats what I figured. i'm sure there is some sort of pre rate or whatever you'd call it.
