I'd agree with Steve here, although the springs look progressive,
they seem completely compressed (dead) in the car, rear only.
So, they're function is linear, unless the car undergoes a whoop
that causes a full (or nearly full) droop. 

BTW, finally measured my scale as to the drop. Steve's measurements
on the front are dead on, I measure 37 mm (1.5 inches) drop, front and
rear, HOWEVER, I am using spacers in the rear. I am running a sedan 
on sedan springs, though.
