Does Koni describe the spring rates that come with the kit? I bought the kit for my other car, but Koni never said how stiff the springs are.

Permissible axle load (v/h) in kg

thats what it reads.
on another note I would love to know the rates also, but vogtland doesnt give them out just like H&R. You gotta figure it out yourself.

hmmm...thats odd. usually, when there are 2 different numbers separated by the slash, it is differentiating between front and rear. and the front is higher due to the engine being in the front

Link kit?

I haven't heard of this. Maybe camber links? If so, then get an SPC/Eibach one, if completely neccessary. The drop is relatively close to the Pro-Kit, therefore I'm not sure what he means by that.

No, the camber kit is being installed at the same time..
I went to canadian tire and the guy showed me a `link kit`
Its like a big screw with plastic stuff. Anyway thought it would have come with the kit itself..

Well I just got home with a 1990 tempo (they're keeping the car overnight to finish the install)
I dunno about that link kit stuff..he says the shock is stiffer so it won't last more than 2 weeks
