I've got a set of suspension techniques springs that are 15-20 years old. I think they are sagging a bit in the back. How do I tell?

is still a spring. just weaker. if it still holds your rear up it's still working.

if it's stiff enough riding for you, and the back end is sagging a little, add a spacer in the rear or take one out in the front (if it isn't already out) or shorten (which will stiffen also) the front spring to match the rear, or get new rear springs to match the front.

Lots of ways you can go. if you don't like it, fix it.

Do you like the heigth? the ride? give us some more details and we can give you more correct to the point answers

PS to answer your question: you would have to know the springs original unsprung length and strength and then compare those specs w/the springs on your car using a machine designed for that (ie at a spring shop)

good luck
