Ok im stretching on this one but i figured id ask anyway. I was trying to get some springs custom made. When i asked this is what they asked me for.
The info they need is:
-The inside diameter of the standard spring. If you could picture the spring as a solid cylinder you have to measure the distance across from one inside wall to the other. Do you understand what I mean??
-The standard wire diameter. This is pretty simple. That's just the diameter of the steel used to form the coil.
-The standard number of coils. That's just the number of windings the spring has. It should be about 6-10.
-The standard loaded height of the spring. This might be a bit tricky. When the spring is loaded, ie with the cars weight on it, you have to measure the distance between the top and bottom spring seats.

I dont have my stock springs so i cant measure any of this. Does anyone have a clue?

should have asked it in the suspension area. :D I'm sure Pat or Mike or one of those other tech guys know.
