I think the problem is the screw. I replaced mine with stainless ones and I haven't had an issue since.

Or you could coat the hole with CA, and when it's almost set, insert the set screw to set the threads and remove until it's fully set.

I found that factory grub screws are smaller in O.D. no matter 4mm or 2.5mm ones.
go buy a stainless one, it normally got deeper Screw thread.

I replaced droop screw w/one off an old x ray-seems to be a little tighter-we will see if it holds.I hope the issue with the factory screw threads has been addressed,as this car loseing droop settings at an inopertune time can be$$$$$$ with a Mod car on asphalt.

We have the spring rates listed on our site on each different spring's product page. I don't have the path to the actual spring chart at the moment, but of you click the link below, you can scroll down to the chart.
