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!

BC Coilover Suspension 08-09 Caliber SRT4 - 08+ Caliber SRT4 Suspension Parts, Struts, Springs, Strut bars, Swaybars, Coilov

Not sure 100% will fit on my compass but I will try soon with used suspension of my friend!

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!
