Find someone with 20T press and an old bathroom scale. Measure as carefully as possible and try to compress the spring 1". You might not get a full inch of travel before running out "scale", so you may need to do some math.

That style doesn't have the lock screws. Adding them would be super easy. Drill and tap the desired size right through the hole where the spanner wrench goes. IF you don't wann do that it's not really a big deal as the ACME thread and weight of the spring should keep it from moving around.
As far as the spring question goes, smashing them is the best way. Find you a speed shop or circle track shop or just a friendly racers online that has one. Most do these days. It only takes a couple minutes so bring beer.

Coil over spring rate
How can I tell the rate of my current coil over springs? I want more ride height and want to figure which springs I currently have and what I need to get

These look like the Vikings on my 4-link, a set screw in the adjustment ring lock into the notch that runs the length of the thread?
Looks can be deceiving but it looks like the adjustment ring has 4 set screws?

QA-1 Coil Overs
Working on a project car (not mine) that has a 4 link with QA-1 coil overs. There is nothing to lock the ring under the spring that sets load on the springs.
The fronts have a set screw to lock the ring. Anybody know what is missing/needed?
