I'm a little confused by this post. From the numbers listed, I'm interpreting the spring rates to be:
145 lb/in (Front)
460 lb/in (Rear)
However, Doyle states that the springs are interchangeable all around (swappable amongst all 4 corners?), which goes against the front/rear notation.
Which part of the info above is correct, because they can't both be unless I'm misunderstanding something.

Lastly, if 145/460 does denote front/rear, why is there such a big difference between the rates? It seems as if the front rate is low, especially for the xi.
