When I change any spring at the track I first measure from the top of the shock to the bottom of the shock and reset that distance after installing the new spring. If you do that you're cross weights shouldn't change. I'm sure other people have there ways of doing it, that is just mine.

I have always measured the car before changing front and rear springs. Have checked this with the scales and were right on. on our appl. we don't reset the RF at all when changing rates of up to 100 LBS. works fine. drop the RF out and just put the new in. If your springs have not settled or shrunk. Keep them newer, take advantage of the spring gaurantees. rear spring changes req. measuring because rates are so much lighter. JUST a THOUGHT
