I believe Mike @ Prestige Motorsports (prestigemotorsportsonline.com) said the factory XTZ rear springs are supposed to be rated at 250lbs each, but they tested at only 211 or so lbs. Mike sells some Eibach replacement springs that are rated @ 350lbs. Everyone that has tried them likes them. There is also another post about some other springs that work on the other Prowler site.
