CoilOvers with lightest springs?

What brand has the lightest springs? Those with ZL1 sway bars on my 2014 S would work best for me. Good ride plus help in the corners.

The spring rates that come on the Pfadt coil overs were selected to provide a significant improvement in handling while still being daily driveable. However, they use a standard motorsports style spring which offers a lot of flexibility for the owner. You can spec them out with any spring rate you need to suite your needs. Whether that means more track capability or maximum ride quality. Hit me up if you need more info.

I know stock its 8kg front, 10kg rear. Not sure what lower rates are available but I wouldn't go too far from that since these cars are overweight pigs. I've only looked into going even firmer for road racing. Best to contact a dealer and order.

Looking to go just slightly softer. I mainly use the car for touring. On track once, maybe twice a year. I find I'm using the softest damper settings to soften up the ride for cruising and if I go too soft on the settings it starts to feel oversprung/underdamped.

We have nowhere near the quality of roads you have in Texas. Love driving in the southern states. Love your speed limits too.

Pretty sure you would find the ride very different if you drove your car in the north. Frost heaves do wonders for pavement.
