Dual rate spring calculators

From what I've read on-line Most of the dual rate calculators spring you on the heavy side. Does any one have experience with this and would you recommended going with lower rates than the calculator comes up with??

spring rate is usally a crap shoot to begin with i have yet to find a calculator that was dead nuts. you still have to consider what the driver perfers too if u like hings a bit soft go softer then what ur told or stiffer if u want that. its a trial and error when it comes to coil overs.

What are you running the coil-overs on? What type of driving are you going to be doing?
