    Ordering my stuff for long travel before midnight tonight but I don't know what spring rate to get. I'm long traveling a 1992 toyota pickup with the 3.0 liter

    I'll be using KING 2.5 X 8 coilovers with the total chaos gen II kit but I need to get some KING springs to go with it and I'm not really sure on what spring rate to go with.

    They have 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400, 425, 450, 500, 550, 600, 650, 700, 750, and 800.

    I'd call the tech line for help but they are not open on sunday and i would like to take advantage of the 10% off before midnight deal.

    Thanks- Blake

    550 if you want it soft, 600 if you want to beat on it. What's your truck weigh? around 3500 or so? No winch or anything right? Also stick with 16" length. You can fit 18's on there, but you won't have any ride height adjustment before coil bind.

    Go with 550's then, if you bottom out too much revalve or get some bumps.
