    Just a small correction....but springs are rated in Lbs/inch.

    The idea is that the "number" tells you how many pounds of weight it will take to compress the spring pack 1 inch....

    According to Tuff Country's website, the 6" front spring is 465, the 6" rear spring is 425. Hope I read that right... TC leaf spring rates
