How accurate did you measure everything?
You need to use calipers to measure the inner diameter and spring wire diameter.
The spring length is from flat to flat that is machined on each end of the spring.
The only variable that I measured possibly inaccurate because of the scale I used would be spring rate. I did not use a calibrated scale....but probably close enuff.
I did not use an actual weight and measure compression change.....but sounds like you are closer to 1.0 bar than 0.8.
Won;t know for sure until you compare to my other numbers as from my previous post above.
