I'm gonna direct this to the suspension forum, you might have a better response from there. Joey should be able to tell you a bit.

This was a good read for me and one possible way to determine spring rates. I would first determine how the car will be used for the majority of its life, calculate what you think you need, get feedback on whats worked for others, then base your decision off of those three parameters.

definately some interesting info. thanks for the link
this car will be used for everything street, track, autoX etc. coilovers would be great but will be a while before they are affordable and a descent set of springs wouldnt go a stray.
i want it low but at the same time dont want to be rolling around. I am perfectly fine with a stiff ride :)
