anybody know the spring rate on REs 5.5" rear tj coil.....we are trying to figure out what spring to use on a buddies cj to 4 link it.....lemme know

I looked a bit and the RE spring rates seem to be a real pita to find but from what I read I believe the spring rate for the rear coils should be between 200 and 220 lbs/in. There was not an exact number besides for the front TJ coils that are 3.5 and 4.5" so I derived those numbers based on what would closely match the front springs (240 and 219 lbs). Hope that helped but I couldnt nail down an exact figure.

does RE still offer decent customer service where they can answer your question over the phone? I havn't talked to them since 1999 when they first began selling their longarms. the phone reps were pretty knowledgable back then at least.

Wow, thats a little stiffer than I had imagined it would be.

Yea, suppose that can be a good thing. No one likes them when they're saggy:D

When I ordered my coils from F.O.A. the website has a calculator to figure spring rate.
