    Rear Coil Overs??

    I was looking through Hawks site and saw that they sell coilover sets for the rear of our cars. I was wondering if anyone had these and what spring rate they have and how they like them.

    Also, what is spring rate?? it says get 17-200 for handling and 150 for drag racing...

    spring rate is how much spring force the spring has. so, the 150, 170-200 is pounds per inch.

    with that much rear spring rate, you better make sure your front springs are high rates of 500+
    Otherwise, your rear is gonna be sliding all over the place with no traction.
    almost stock triple-black 2000 SS convertible with 17x11s on all 4 w/ 315s at the track or on the street with 18x10.5s on all 4 w/ 315s: (1), (2)
