8K front, 10K rear - thoughts?

Ordering from fortune, their recommendation is 8/10. Thoughts / comments?
Intended use is all street.

WINNIPEG = TERRIBLE

The roads are pretty rough. Are softer springs going to better at soaking up hits, or are they going to be more at risk of bottoming out? Intuitively, lower springs rates sound more comfortable but there must a point where they're too soft.

Are you going with the 500?

not bottoming out should be the shocks' job which can be tuned from your coilover.

Someone has calculated the OE progressive spring on this forum which is equivalent to about 5.8 - 6.3kg if memory serves..

Found it.. https://www.zpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=717307
