Only way it could be dual rate is if the lighter spring length totally compresses prior to the heavier spring section. You get Keq for the first part of the travel, then K1 for the remaining travel after the light spring K2 fully closes.

Okay, so are they binding the lighter coils during travel? I don't see any crossover ring, so that is the only way this produces a dual rate.

Otherwise, as we all learned in physics, 1/keq = 1/k1 + 1/k2. Putting two different rates on a single coil does not magically make a dual rate spring, no matter how much...more
