It would be almost impossible to give a spring rate ... because there are a few different ones installed by GM ... at the factory. SBC, BBC and options all affect the spring rate that GM would install

Most any dirt track guy should have a spring checker ... and tell what the rate is they you have ...

Look on the net for a approximate spring rate calculator.
