Calculate it. You know corner weight, you know spring rates, ...
What I was wondering about is the natural (unweighted) curve of the c5z vs the t1.
And I'm not even sure it factors in to ride height, does it? Or is it just rate?
When I was changing springs on my 96 lt4 there was more than an inch height difference in the unweighted spring heights. There are dozens of different springs (factory & aftermarket) for the c4 & it was an ongoing discussion due in part to lack of information about which springs to use on c4's.
The t1 spring rates ARE higher RATED, but early indications are that the car sits lower on them. How can that be unless the unweighted curve also plays a part?
When I made the change, the T1 set up was about 1" lower then then stock. Before corner weighting
Thank you, my GUESSING is they are FLATTER when off the car, I will take a pic & measure them when I get to the change. It'll be easy enough to raise the car with the adjusters so this is a good thing.
