Thanks, your posts add a lot to the knowledge of the forum. Do you have enough information to list standard spring rates for each coilover?

Based on their website,

The RDSport Chassis Kit includes uprated struts and springs providing an 18% increase in stiffness while lowering the vehicle 1" in the front and 0.75" in the rear.

why do most coilover allow more drop on the front than the rear. wouldn't it better for handling to drop like 1" all around than say 1.5 front/1rear?

Most kits have adjustable heights, so you can fine tune it to your own liking...
