Default C7 ZR1 Spring Rate Comparison

Considering C7 ZR1 Big Wing for touring. Have C7 Z06/Z07. How do the spring rates compare between these two performance suspensions?

I think I've read somewhere that they changed the track width to change the effective spring rate. A more specific question could be comparing the "wheel rates".

Thanks for pointing that out. If the the track width has changed too, then the ride for touring, which is my concern, is affected by the combination. Good point.
