Question STI, SPT..etc spring rate list maybe?

Lots of good info here. I have been wondering for a while about the different rates. Can someone who has all the specs give us a nice consoledated list? All the same rate measurements like kg/m.
For the UK STI, JDM STI, SPT, and STI RA springs? I for one would like to see how they all compare.

The stock US WRX front spring rates on Ravensblade are wrong.
The figures are from DMS Australia. And I believe they're wrong even for the Aussie MY01 WRX.

Brian, I wish you would correct it!

Here are the correct figures from SOA:
http://www.i-club.com/forums/showthr...5&pagenumber=2

Converted from metric:

US WRX sedan MT:
163 lbf/in F
119 lbf/in R

The STi/SPT WRX spring rates Brian's site shows are correct.

Ok, the spring rate chart is up to do date. I've emailed SOA about the wagon information, as that is still missing at this point .

I believe the DMS Golds are 40mm not 50mm. Also you might want to indicate that they're progressive with something like ???-225 and ???-180 when the details aren't known otherwise people might think they're non-progressive.

Thanks for the info. We need lots more stuff like this.
