 G40 (PY)

1 paint mark yellow
2 paint marks orange

these marks determine the rating, Hope this helps,

I meant what rate are they, I have made an educated guess at about 85lbs now going off some info I found on another thread on here linking to details of a post on Club GTI where someone had got the proper info for a mk1 golf gti.

ask Tom Harrison.

He used to work for a spring company in sheffield.  He took my NOS g40 springs and measured them and remade them.
