Default Difference between 04+ Sedan and Wagon rear springs

Till now, most of us have agreed that the main difference between the wagon and sedan spring is that the wagon has a bit more free length. Well, here are the long awaited pics:

Arnie- thanks for posting those! It's a little hard to tell from the pic, but do you have a ballpark of the difference in length? Interesting how much more linear the wagon spring is Wonder if that has always been true or if it's a MY change??

I dunno, lengthwise, it doesn't look like much 1/2 and inch or so but the wind is very different. I need to collect some other springs and make more comparisons. I'll ask my locals and see what is laying about.

Yeah- very different wind for sure. Even if they were identical lengths, if you were to put those two springs on the same car, the sedan ones would most definitely sit lower than the wagon ones pictured, jsut due to the progressive winds at the bottom. I know the wagon rear springs are a little stiffer rate as well- which would add a little height too.
