Question HHR Suspension?

Is the hhr suspension any similar to the PT? May have been asked before, but I've been Googling and I have had no luck...

I'm just curious.

Kinda doubt it'll be close enough to swap due to spring rate/size and all that jazz.

Do you know of the PT's spring rate/size? I just think it would be interesting to see what cars have similar spring specs.

I honestly don't remember, but I know some gurus do. When they see this thread they'll chime in.

There seems to be conflicting reported information about what the stock spring rate is. I have a feeling no one has really checked it independently and any of the spring companies because of liability are most likely not going to publish or tell you what they are. We always had to do it ourselves in the shop. It is very easy but does require having at least one spring to do the measurements off the vehicle.

Try this?
I know that there are several members that have the stock springs after doing an after market spring change that can give you the information needed for the calculations. Maybe 808 still has his to tell us? ^^^
