spring rate

Someone know the spring rate of oem coil on compass 2011. Because I will plan to install BC coilover on my jeep. Caliber bc's will probadly fit on my jeep but I got to confirm the spring rate first.

i've never found the spring rate for the compass, maybe check the lowering springs available from eibach. if they use the same part number for the caliber and the compass that might suggest that the spring rate is the same on both.

It's not for lower my jeep it's for a better handling!

You missed my point, I wasn't saying to buy some springs. I was suggesting to cross reference parts between caliber and compass, assuming there is more info available on the caliber.

Somebody got Compass lowered? How goes during winter time. Because if the jeep it's more stiff, the traction (handling in the snow) should be worst then the oem suspension!

only two screws on the rear trim where the rear hatch close. The rest of the panel is just clip in place.

I will take pic's if you want!

What did you use to correct front camber? camber bolts?

Hi, i just looked after P/N of the springs that i installed couple of weeks ago in my compass 2008. Well this springs are for compass 2011.
Are this springs the same? maybe thats the reason i have -1.2 camber now instead of -0.8??.... i feel the truck more soft, i think the spring should be the same (truck weigth should be similar, and suspension the same also?). Please send me some comments.

I don't know how he keep from beating it up. I driven in Montreal a number of times and the roads are pretty rough. One long speed bump. It would not clear the front on many speed bumps here. I like the higher position but that just me I guess. I do like the tool kit used to work on in the back though. I have them as well when working in the back. I did not make out the brand of... brew.

Sorry to hash an old thread, but I wanted to get your opinion on the handling and the ride quality of your jeep now that youve had the coils on for about a month. I am also looking to lower mine this summer with a set of bbs wheels. Just want to know if you have had any issues (bouncy, too stiff) anything like that. Thanks!
