Default RE: Everyone please help, slipper spring specs!!!!!!!!

None of those specs regulate pressure on the slipper pads. What you need to know to figure out how much pressure we are applying is the spring force constant of the spring (k), and the distance we are compressing them (x). The formula is f=kx, with f being in Newtons.

If you are just looking for dimensions than ignore this post.
