Its normally written or engraved on the ends of the springs if that helps

it's possible to have them measured so you know their rate. As I just needed to refresh the appearance I simply painted mine without ever knowing the rate.

I ran my road going/sprint Busa that had ARBs with 250lbs front and 150 lbs rear on the Nitron Shocks

But my Nitrons were fitted to a Seight in 2007..
So it's probably 30-40% heavier than a Megabusa.!.
Do Westfield go to the trouble of adjusting the Nitron spring rates to match the car weight?
The last springs I bought had the rates just written on the ends - so I suspect the spring platforms would soon wear that away..
Maybe I'll have a look anyway..

No markings on my springs, but tested at 200lb front (black) and 150lb rear (Red) - supplied with the dampers in 2003

We can test springs for you at £40 + vat for a set of 4 + return postage if that helps?
(We can dyno your dampers at the same time as well for £75+ vat for a set of 4 for WSCC members - usual price £100; this includes force/displacement plots and force/velocity plots of the dampers)
