Steeda 2012-13 Focus lowering spring rates

Hoping to find the spring rates of your 2012-13 lowering springs? Also, are they linear or progressive rate. The website description is very vague(trying to be nice). I also e-mailed Steeda directly and all I got back was a survey on how good the customer service was?? BTW the Canadian dealer had no clue as to the spring rates either, and not even the knowledge of the springs being linear or progressive.

195lbs front/240lbs rear. I was hoping for close to 325lbs fronts and 400lbs rear.

TJ, thanks for this info. I will wait till a company comes out with a race set that I will couple with Bilstein HDs.

I know this thread is about the spring rates, but I was wondering how long it takes for the springs to set in and drop completely.

Our springs generally are very quick to fully settle. Most cars are as low as they will get the first day for some ... it may take an extra couple days.

Best Regards,

TJ
