How do I check the load setting of a spring support?

To check the load setting, examine the position of the bottom of the load indicator with respect to the scale on the spring's tag. Read from the bottom of the load indicator to determine position. Next, look at the size of the spring located on the tag. Then, refer to the appropriate load and travel table (Constant Load & Travel Table or Variable Load and Travel Table) to determine the respective spring rate and the "0" load (minimum working range load). Multiply the spring rate by the position value and add that to the "0" load value.
