Default Stock Spring Rates for 97-99 Legacy GT?

Does anyone have a clue as to what the stock spring rates are on the 97-99 Legacy GT?

Thanks
Brad

Brad -While this doesn't answer your question it might be of interest. A couple of mths ago I asked the same spring rate question about 2001 Legacy L and GT Wagon's. If you do a search you will find that a number of people have asked about the "stock" rates on a number of different MY Legacy's with no answers so ...I asked SOA and the answer was that
Quote:
spring and dampening rates are not available for our vehicles. We do test the springs at one set point, but this is not a true spring rate spec. as it is variable.
The interesting part of all this is that the e-mail was signed John J. Mergen - the same John J. Mergen who also signed a table comparing the Spring and Damper rates of an Impreza RS vs a WRX !

I have e-mailed SOA and asked to have this descrepency explained - so far my e-mail "has be refered to another party"

If anyone is interested I'll post any results I get -

Very interesting.

Please let us know what you find out.

I refuse to believe SOA doesn't manufacture springs with specific rates. How can you have a "Sport Tuned Suspension" without know the spring rates and lengths to match up with shock valving and neck length?
