Default 6" 200# coilover springs

I've got 400 front and 300 rear. Want to put the 300 in front and run 200 in the rear but can't find anybody with a 6" 200-225# coilover spring. Truechoice site won't work. Any suggestions?

Why do they have to be 6"? You can get 8" in 200. They probably have to be longer at the lower spring rate or else you'll get coil bind.

This could be the reason you can't find them in 6"

My buddy has a set of eibachs 200# 6" but he doesn't remember where he got them.
8" in 200 won't fit on the rear with a sleeved coil over setup. 7" will barely do it- sitting at the bottom of the collar, the car sits just under 13" from fender lip peak to hub center. Maybe I'll go back to the Rsprings in the rear and some aftermarket with a higher rate up front and sell the coil overs. Figured somebody would have a retailer that sells the ers springs... besides GC.

Call GC. They can order any ERS spring.

I bet they would fit if you preloaded them, and since they are linear it shouldn't matter right?

a preloaded longer spring at that rate will guarantee bind

I will use the phone (dammit)
