I am not sure about the spring rate of the Yokomo pro spring. but here is the chart for the spring set from soft to hard.

(Soft) Black→Blue→Yellow→Pink→Green→Orange (Hard)

These longer length springs have a more progressive characteristic. Soft initially, the rate becomes progressively stiffer as the chassis goes into roll. As a result, less stress is placed on the tires, allowing the tires to provide better grip for improved lap times. All of the springs are colored white to blend in easier with the surrounding parts. Each spring is color marked to indicate spring rate.

The spring rates are listed a few pages back on the BD5 thread. I would link it, but on my cellphone at work on break.

Ride height is adjusted with the spring collar on the shock.

haha i just read what i wrote...

i have an old BD, which needs parts+ spares. and some1 is selling a SD with spares. which is why i wanted to know if any SD parts will fit the BD. or any parts from other mnaufacturers.

AND, i also have a BD5. but since its hard to get parts in aus(and expensive), i dont want to break anything on my bd5...

nice mate, did you notice you were any faster with the BD5 over its predecessor the old BD?

Yes if you wanna fix up your old BD many SD parts (most) fit.

BD5 is much better, especially into turns. much more controlled and balanced imo.
but the BD is still an amazing car, i still drive it, but it does need some parts.
but once its fixed up, it will be sold.
btw, pm'ed you fastol
