    I thought i remember reading thoughts kicked around here regarding the actual spring rates of the differnt OME springs. For example, the medium springs were actually the same spring rate as the heavies or even the J's. Is this true? Reason i ask is because of the thought process that the ride will not be any stiffer with heavies vs. mediums, just the ride height.
