Even though the springs are beefier, the max weight capacity is the same throughout the RAV4 lineup at 900lbs.
I wouldn't know. You could email them and ask what the spring rate is of their spring. Everytime I've email them, they have been quick to respond and pretty informative.

The price is pretty reasonable for the springs. If anyone gets them, hopefully they will let's us know what they think. I know alot, if not most of you guys are running spacer kits. They are the only company I know of that makes a stiffer spring for our Rav's

I messaged them to get some more info. Shipping to Canada might make it more complicated but we'll see!

So far it has been. Hopefully I'll be getting the endlink prototype from them this next week. They told me they would do a final inspection on the part today, and if they were satisfied they would make and send me one for testing

For the 900 dollar LP adventure kit, it should come with new shocks, coils, and struts!!! that is a steep price.

The LP aventure lift price is steep but I do think the kit is the most complete. With the way it is designed, there’s no need for new shocks or struts anyway. That kit devotes more attention to the small things that would make a lifted Rav4 ride like stock - bumpstop extensions, brake line spacers, trailing arm spacers, etc... I have the skidplate they make and it is truly a quality piece - I would imagine the lifts are to the same spec.

That being said I am glad to see Northwoods making parts for our cars - it seems like an enthusiast who wanted to make parts for their own Rav4 sharing their work with others. I am really interested in the HD rear springs, just wondering how much stiffer they are than the stock ones so I can haul heavy loads and avoid the rear sag.

I got a reply from Northwoods, the HD springs have 10-20% higher spring rate than stock. Nathan seemed to say they would help with sag when loaded.

I’m wondering if they would be a good match with my subframe spacers... the option of adding a lift spring with my subframe spacers is tempting but I am a bit concerned about any possible negative effects.
