All Pedders coil springs are designed with a heavier rate than Original Equipment. The rate for every coil for each car is designed very carefully and is calculated using a “load vs deflection” formula. The coil will not compress as much at its loaded ride height, therefore, the starting height of the “free length” will be shorter.
