spring rate of the front coils?

so i have been searching, but all the threads i looked at had different answers.

so, what is the spring rate of the stock coils and of the silver eibach coils from the toytec lift?

is stock around 560# ?
in the threads i have looked at, people say that the eibachs range from 620-650#

so what is it?

I forget but I remember SR5 coils were 540 and TRDs were 590? Yes the off roads and sports are different coils...

ok... so i found the answers....


i called toytec directly and both the red and silver coils for the ultimate kit are eibach springs and are 600# @ 16 inches.

the stock trd springs are 540# @ 14 inches.

BTW, they are really nice and hepful at toytec. the lady i talked to went out of her way to answer all my questions

That's funny. I was told by Toytec that my silver Eibach/ Toytec springs were 620.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Some are. The most common Eibach spring rates for the Tacoma are:
600#
620#
and 650#
