The formula for computing the transverse leaf spring rate is:
___ x ( ____)3
I apologize for the crude depiction of the formula, but the second expression
is in parenthese and raised to the third power.
W= Width of leaves in inches
N= Number of leaves
t= Thickness of one leaf in inches
L= Length of spring in inches
12= A constant for all leaf springs
That's how it's calculated. I get approximately 199.7 inch lbs.
