    Yeah I think 1200 lb/in is the limit but It should be good enough not sure how long they are I think they are 6" but not 100% sure. Ether way for me it sounds like the best option in that price range for single adjustable coilovers.

    Say what?

    There are a lot of good things about a true coilover rear. Better ride quality at the same same wheel rate, lighter, and wayyyyy more spring tuning options.

    Vorshlag had such a problem on the development car where the spring of the Coilovers was touching the half shaft and they needed to replace it. Which is obviously not great. Also the strut mounts are aluminium and not exactly designed to handle the additional load from the springs on that location which is why the rear is divorced spring.

    That just means that they didn't have properly designed offset of the lower mounting. Not every true coilover has that issue. Regarding the durability of the mounting, you've highlighted why I chose what I chose. 20200309_085740.jpg
