    Well I was searching around at coil-overs and saw that there are two different ratings for the spring rate. One in lb/in (Lb)and one in kg/mm (K).

    To covert a lb/in to a kg/mm, multiply XXX lb/in by 0.0179.

    To convert a kg/mm to a lb/mm, divide XX kg/mm by 0.0179

    Example:

    Spring rate rating of 440 lb/in = 7.876 kg/mm
    Spring rate rating of 10kg/mm = 558.66 lb/in
