I was just reading the newest Grassroots Mag. article on the project M3. (march2002) They were talking about spring rates and listed some #'s that seemed very odd.<p>stock M3 spring they said were 239 lbs front and 106 lbs rear. (I've always read somewhere around 100 front and 300 rear)<p>they installed the Eibach pro-kit which they say rated at 274-342 (progresive) front and 116 rear.<p>what is with this info....can this be just misprints.... it seems like they have all the spring ratings backwards.<p>can anyone shed some light on this?<br>Thanks, Chris

Thankfully they couldn't fit them in the wrong place..... Tehy wouldn't fit......<br>
