shock angle formula

Does anyone know a formula for calculating spring rate change for coilover shocks when the shock is angled in at the top? Example 200 lb. spring rate in a 90 degree (straight up) position then angled in toward the centerof the car by 30 degrees. Inquiring minds would like to know.
Thanks,
Hot34coupe

If you misplace the URL for that calculator, you can divide your desired rate by the square of the cosine of the angle.
