kg/mm to lb/in spring rate conversion
« on: May 04, 2011, 09:51:49 AM »
I've had people ask me many times how to do this conversion, thought I'd put it out there for all to see/know.

This will aid in conversations with just about anyone when discussing spring rates.

So if you're new coilovers come with 9k springs, then you are effectively running 504 lb/in springs to people in the US. This will hopefully come in handy for a few people.

Thanks - Jon
