I have a set of ground controls for illuminas for my 2002 NB, yet to be installed. They were ordered from Flyin Miata in the standard GC rates for illuminas from them, 425 lb/in in front and 300 lb/in rears. This is for a spirited street car.
I dont find the spring looseness at full droop to be confidence inspiring, and was wondering If this is anything to be concerned about. I could see the springs divorcing themselves from the included perches under certain conditions and creating all sorts of issues.
Im investigating helper and tender springs, but havent seen much information to aid me in my decision making. Im leaning towards just getting helper springs, as I am not particularly inclined to change my spring rates in pursuit of a solution.
These are what I am looking at. They seem the obvious answer, barring any of you have objections or know of a cheaper yet equally effective solution.
Of course, its entirely possible I am over thinking this and the car will never go to full droop on the street, but the loose fit of these still doesnt jive well with me.
Your advice is appreciated. If this is noobing you guys out, I apologize.
