Hi John,
According to the brochure on their website the springs are available in a wide variety of spring rates - you probably need to talk to them direct

Hi

Would the rate not be the same as the standard Lotus (93 lb in)?

The manual has the standard rear +2 as:

Coils = 9.7
Wire dia = 11.02mm
Rate = 93 lb in
Free length = 40.6cm

Hope its helpful?

I used 110 lb x 14" free length with adjustbale Koni inserts backed off a half turn from full soft. This was on Tony Thompsons advice.

As I have not driven the car yet however I cannot say if it was a good choice :lol:
