Is there a percentage of the free length height a spring should be compressed to ?
Have a Coil spring question.
I am finishing up custom IFS I building.
Have no idea what the final weight is going to be yet.
Would like to fabricate upper and lower mounting points for springs temporary
for clearance fitment.
Is there a percentage of the free length height a spring should be compressed
to at ride height?
Or just 1", 2", ....etc. greater than the maximum rebound length when installed?
I know about Spring rats, angel, position and wire size Etc. in relation to vehicle weight.
But I think I heard some where a spring should be compressed to a certain
percentage of its free length at ride height if possible?
It has to be some design of conventional Coil Spring not coil over!
There is no other vehicles I can directly reference it to.
