    For what application? X-flow or Pinto (pinto weight is a bit porky) - all affect spring rate and static length. My std. springed RS has reasonably compliant suspension considering its cart / tractor heritage compared to modern stuff. Even the front dampers could be too stiff - that doesn't help!

    It's always been a minefield with spring rates and ride heights on Escorts unless you have adjustable platforms. Various suppliers and spring manufacturers all seem to be different in one form or another. . The easiest way's to do it the old fashioned way, take the pring off and go to a shop and compare different lenghts. It's no good using Mail order for that reason.
