weitec hicon gt coilovers.. rear spring rate?

Post by treefingers » Sun Apr 14, 2019 10:49 am

hi all

i’m after some stiffer springs and want to find out the spring rate of my weitec hicon gt coilvers.

i know the fronts as it’s written on the front springs, 60n per mm, but i can’t find out the rears as it’s rubbed off the springs! any photos i have from back when are blurry, and weitec wont tell me what the rate is as i’m not buying the new springs from them.

i could corner weigh the car but i’ve already busted one set of bathroom scales!

does anyone know what the rear spring rate is? thanks

My Weitec HIcon GT rear springs have 200 - 50 stamped on them if this means anything to you.

I've now fitted 400lb springs up front and 325lb springs rear and it's fantastic :)
