Question Spring rates

I've long dreamed of lowering my car and such, and for a while, talked myself out of it as it would bump me out of SCCA Stock. Well, as it's looking like I won't be able to get fully involved in Auto-X, I'm dropping the "save money to stay stock idea".

I want to lower my car a tad with new springs, and later, new struts as well. Does the wagon use different spring rates than the sedan? Any idea how much stiffer?

Now, to get some company to accept some funds right off my printer....

Thanks, Subie Gal!

You make me think that polygamists are onto something!

I don't know if the rears on my 93 Turbo have a higher rate but i'd think they would due to the extra weight of the wagon's rear.

I don't think they are, because springs for the sedan fit the Wagon just the same...
