The stock spring rate should be added for a comparison. I'm not sure what it is our I would say. So basicly I want to know what it is.

Get the data, and I'll update the first post. If anyone has the #'s post 'em up!!!!

Maybe add a comment if the springs affect the auto-levelers for the HIDs?

They don't affect the auto levelers. Only improper leveler reassembly can, and it's easy to get it backwards.
vag-com blocks and how it was identified:

Once this comes together a bit more, I'll add it to the FAQ. I'll definitely be following it as I am very interested myself. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: (BRM10984)

I'll get what I can when I'm off work tonight... hopefully, we can get all this info in the same place.
Eibach will give you the specs if you call them!

Eibach Pro-Kit:
1.3" lower F&R,
15-20% stiffer than stock.
Eibach SportLine:
1.8" lower F&R,
30-35% stiffer than stock.
Both are progressive springs. They are quoted for a 2.5L car. So, I am to assume that we need to find out what 2.5 spring rates are, then find out what GLI/ GTI rates are. From there, we can interpolate what 20% and 35% stiffer than 2.5 stock is and compare it to GLI/ GTI stock for a rough estimate, no?

Re: (BRM10984)

I'll update that, but I'd like to have the actual spring rates.
I was on hold forever with eibach. Anyone got time to call them and stay on hold?

That was from a call directly to them. They don't even have the spring rates. That's what he gave me, to a "T."

What does "progressive" mean?

a progressive spring rate.
"moderate" at first, then harder as the spring compresses.
Really, they have two spring rates, but the stiffer rate is usually what is quoted.

It basically means that the spring rate changes as the spring compresses. The purpose is to start out with a bit more "plush" ride but to provide at least some increase in performance under compression.
Right?

Bingo! I thought my 02 Jetta GLS's were progressive but the 06 GLI's sure do ride great....Neuspeeds.....I love em....and they are really no more harsh than the stock GLI's.....Great goin Aaron. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
