Assuming your spring rates are linear, which is most likely, it will always take a given amount of pressure to compress the spring a certain distance. If your spring rates were say 200lb/inch, it will always take 200lbs of pressure to compress the spring an inch until it can be compressed no more. The position of the car shouldn't have an effect on it. The stiffness of a spring is constant.
