Glad to hear someone else talking about the crappy travel in the stock suspension. I feel that lowering springs in any way on the stock shocks or shocks that don't use shortened bodies is a horrible idea that will result in poor ride quality and worse handling.

Comparing ratios is not the proper way of figuring out spring rates for the car. Weight distribution and natural frequencies play into the equation in such a way that makes the ratio method not reliable.
