The lbs per inch are all the same but the lengths are different. Longer springs=heavier load capacity.

So would it be good for me to go with the highest load capacity springs (KUM?) with new shocks to try and raise my rear end up and prevent it from sagging in the future, or does the Monroe Quick Strut Kit normally do it?

Or are Quick Strut users just having the same problems a few years down the road?

I haven't heard of Quickstruts sagging prematurely like the stock rear springs do - mine definitely raised the rear back where it should be, but I can't speak personally on longevity since they only have about 100 miles on them.

You won't find the KUM springs unless used. And they will really raise the car up and show quite a bit of wheel gap.

Every car is going to sag given enough time and exposure to the elements...tbut it did take them until 2004 to stop the springs from deciding they'd rather be in two pieces.

My 96 Sable wagon has TAX in the rear and LOW in the front. The chart does not provide the TAX spring ratings.

How will the Moog progressive springs for the rear work out. Will the load rating and ride be relative to what is on it from the factory.

Anyone who has put the MOOGs on a wagon(front or rear) care to share their experiences.
