There was a GRM article on lowering a 944. They did the same thing except, of course, that car had stock torsion bars instead of coil springs. They actually just unloaded the torsion bars a bit and put on the coilovers.
I'm sure you could get the right rate to do this in the coilover spring since those are probably standard size, e.g. 2.5" or something, but I'm not sure about the stock spring. Is there some standard sized spring that fits on the rear perches or is that completely application specific?
