Boy, Ned and 31Vicky, you sure have a great grasp of this stuff and thanks for explaining it in more understandable terms. I'll never be able to recite it all to a 3rd party but I do get the gist of it now. It would be nice to hear from the broader audience of this thread to see if they took any benefit from these discussions or have some positive feedback after reading all our discussions. I'd hope from now on we will see many more projects being built with a little me focus on using the right springs and ending up with the right spring set when loaded and ready to drive. Mucho gracias to all concerned. Russ.
