i think the standard for measurement is the rate.

in which case, RaceTech' website has a formula sheet that gives you everything youll need to know. Then maybe you can call them to get the actual diameter.

The diameter of the spring wire rarely varies with rate, although it can be done that way. More commonly, the winding rate is altered. What you want is the right spring rates for your weight.

Go to Race Tech and click the Spring Rate Search link at the upper left.
