Can I use the spring calculator in the Tool Box to calculate the rating of Pig Tail type coil springs? How do I do it? I have the wire diameter, the coil diameter. What do I use for the height? Do I use the entire height including pigs? Do I eliminate the pigs when counting active coils? I need help! They’re the GM metric type rear coils.

Thanks,

FAIRLANIAC, if you can tell me what the springs originally fit, if they are OE, I can probably tell you the rate. SLEEPY
