Default 2001 SL2 Spring Constant and damping constant?

Does anyone know where to find information on the damping and spring constant for the suspension of a 2001 saturn SL2. Was thinking of doing an experiment on my car for a class I'm in and I can't seem to find what they are.

Thanks for any help,

Chris

Default Re: 2001 SL2 Spring Constant and damping constant?

stock springs rates are 22.0 N/mm (125.6 lbs/in) front and 22.5 N/mm (128.5 lbs/in) rear.
the rate at wheels are 20.75 N/mm front and 21.43 N/mm rear if that helps.

Eric,

Thank you. That is great!

One more question, Do you know what the damping constants are on the shock absorber? Or at least to what damping ratio they design the car to have?

Thanks again,

Chris
