    Coil Spring Rates ?

    What are the spring rates for E46's ?

    I just bought a set of coils for lowering my E46...

    these are the specs:
    • 100% brand new, Never been tried or installed
    • Comes with 2 front and 2 rear lowering springs kit; in Yellow color exactly shown in the picture
    • Better handling stabality/Drift control, Compatible With OEM shock
    • Improve Corner Grips and Balance
    • Lower Rate: 2,25" Front / 1.5" Rear
    • Spring Rate: 300 lbs/in Front 250 lbs/in Rear
    • No instructions included, Professional installation is highly recommended

    Suits me fine, the OEM ones are way too soft after heat treatment to shorten the coils Click here to enlarge

    Not sure what to think of it... but i got a set of 4 coils for 90$...

    I guess it's a you get what you pay for thing... but only time will tell, i have new bilstein shocks on the car so a little more stiff than OEM will be fine...

    only looking for a little better stance but OEM-like handling / ride...
