Pretty sure you can buy used NASCAR springs with the same rates as these and the same dia for about $39 bucks each just Google NASCAR Springs MFG. and Rates... also can be found on E-Bay.
I used a set on my 951 GT Car at 450#'s left front and 400#'s right front and they worked out great. The fit right in the non-ajustable spring perches top and bottom. The only mod I hade to do was cut the hight of the spring down by 1/2 "... hello anyone at home!

Well these are made for the adjustable perch M030 KONI and Bilstein shocks that came so equipped. So no guessing, fitting, researching or making mistakes. The REAL deal and while not for everyone like yourself (RRRacing 42 years) there are a few who do want original OEM parts. Thanks for the bump though!

NASCAR Springs... they will not fit MO30 Front Struts... they will however fit the yellow sport shocks with the """"(((NON-AJUSTABLE Spring Perches)))""""... please read the 1st post-it... do you own home work... just Google any NASCAR Supplier - MFG> for your answer! (2) good guys with air tools can change out these springs in less than 15 min's. I never did say the Nascar Springs fit the MO30 Struts... duh
Try thinking low dollar... high performance superior results & quick productivity, instead of high dollar... same thing ever one else is running!



Tks... for the bump... Ron

Here is a pic that tells a huge story of winning and fast times on the track... pay very - very close attention to the foot print, roll rate angles and most of all to the height clearance of the front wheel between the top opening in the fender... hum?
This is at over 120 MPH coming out of thunder vally at Mid Ohio...



This one is going into the key hole at about 80 MPH... this is the car with the NASCAR Springs...

Those are not progressive rate springs. They are linear rate springs. I think you will have a hard time finding progressive rate springs. Do you know the difference between the two?

I know linear rate springs are cheap and easy to get. I've run many sets on various cars and yes they are ideal for track cars given their linear rate and predictability. I have no doubt that you can set up a fast and predictable track car with linear rate springs. Progressive rate springs are preferred on the street for comfort. The OP is selling different springs from what you are suggesting. It's the same you telling someone trying to sell a $500k Ferrarri that they can get a Formula Ford which is faster for $10k and they should buy that instead.

BTW- nice track car. Apologies to the OP for going off topic also. A moderator might be able to clean up this thread.

Nope I have no problems with anyone here who wants to add there 2 cents as long as its on topic and directly related. Which I feel this conversation is, its all good info and no one is right or wrong just different opinions that maybe should be discussed in a seperate thread on the discussion forums not FOR SALE links:

Lindsey was making reproductions of those as well. I'm not sure if they still are. They were say those perform great but pretty stiff. That's not much progression but I'm sure they work well.
