Default Suspension weight...

Does anyone know if there is a place on the web to find out the weight specs of suspension parts?

I am trying to find out if there are coilovers that are the same weight as, or hopefullylighter than, the stock suspension of a B6 S4. Unfortunately I can't find any web pages thatlist the weights of these things.

Thanks for any help!

It's very doubtful that you're going to find a site built by someone who has taken the time to weigh all sorts of random struts, springs, control arms, etc. About the only way you're really going to get any general idea of this is to weigh your own OEM suspension parts and compare that to the listed shipping weight from a vendor (and remember, that weight is only approximate - there's packing materials, the box, and possibly a little "weight padding" involved there too).

just to let you know... you arent going to save much weight or at all from getting coilovers, they are usually a little bit heavier. when i swapped out on my old eclipse, i was wondering if i saved any weight at all, i weighed the difference (Koni's) i added around 5 lbs totalcause everything was hevier duty.
