    There should be numbers on the Eibach springs that come with the GC coil-overs. I don't remember which order they go in, but there should be a 250 (to indicate it's a 2.5" spring), then a rate and a length. So an 8" long 600# spring would be 250.600.800 or 600.250.800 or something like that.

    Hotchkis bars and Z06 endlinks will work just fine with the KWs.

    -- Let me know the rate and we can talk about the price and when you may have the v3's so you can sell the GC kit.

    It's stamped on the spring. ...along with size.

    Re: KW variant 3

    I installed the kw v3 setup about a month ago and decided to order a set of 628 pound/inch rear springs 250mm length 60mm ID to replace the stock 514 pound/inch. I was seeing a lot of sagging in the back as I have a hitch and tow sportbikes from time to time so though I would bump up the 110 N/mm.

    AAIIIC - great thread for both install and info on spring choices

    thmotorsports has a good deal on these slightly better than allsprings
