Lets go to dual springs then and keep the small wire diameter so not to compromise the coil bind height, Doggone it! You must have a larger diameter outer spring to accept the inner spring. Right?
First off, when you're dead wrong, no one can guess that you didn't really mean what you said, if that is the case then there is really no point in saying anything as its never what you meant.

Secondly a thicker wire diameter can be ran with a shorter spring or a smaller OD.

Lastly, with a different spring material you can run smaller diameter, and smaller OD and a shorter spring and still end up with more pressure and travel.
