Does anyone happen to know the stock spring rates on the 5th gen preludes?

I called Eibach and got some numbers a looooong time ago. I don't remember them exactly, but I remember it was something along the lines of;

177 lb/in front
130 lb/in progressive (up to 200 lb/in or something like that)

Don't quote me as my memory is bad!


There is a local shop that has a spring tester...I could try testing a front and rear spring.......maybe.....

I'm not sure either, I think Marcucci (plus Billy?) either measured them or found out what stock, Eibach Pro-kit and Tanabe Super H spring rates were. Maybe they'll find them again.

Oops........


I don't think the Eibachs were quite that stiff in the rear. They are progressive, so a single number is not really a good measurement.

There's an easy way to find the spring rate, but I don't have a lot of weights!

Remember:

f = k x

Where f is the force applied to the spring, k is the spring rate, and x is the distance the spring is compressed (or extended). If you can stack on 200 lbs or so of weight, and measure the amount the spring compresses, then plug those numbers into the equation, and there you go, you have the spring rate.
