Oops, your right. Make that 5 different springs in the same lift area

I didn't know if the 3" and 4" were the same rate or not. Does anybody happen to know the rate, or is it proprietary?

Rates are the same for both. I had the 3" and they were 20" free length front and 15.5" rear iirc. The 4" fronts are 22.5" and rears were 18.5" iirc. It's been a few months since I had them in my possession. I have 934 fronts and 942 rears now.

If the spring is 2.5" longer free but only 1" longer under load wouldn't it have a softer spring rate?
