Spring rate for RE 4.5 XD

If you are running the RE 4.5 XD springs can you tell me what the spring rates are front and rear. If you don't know use the following link.

With a few measurments it takes just a couple of minutes. Measure at ride height.

Thanks!

This is what I got:

Front: 147.17 lbs-in (.25"H x 2.5"W x 48"L x 5 leaf)
Rear: 176.61 lbs-in (.25"H x 2.5"W x 48"L x 6 leaf)

Keep in mind these leaves have military wraps, bolted spring clamps and teflon pads which probably aren't factored into the calculator.

Thanks! Is that 48 inch measured from the center of the hole on each end of the spring? Like where the bolt goes thru to hold it to the shackle and the spring mount on the rear of the spring.
I am just gathering info, Thanks!

48" was the best guesstimate I could make using a metal tape under the vehicle while trying to hold it and keep it from bending. Kinda hard to measure those things when they're already installed. I measured from end to end, so eye to eye would actually be a little less.

Cool thanks. I thought 48 was a bit long.
