weird. honestly I never thought of it once.

not an issue at all on a miata, the travel is so short you adjust the collar and its sorted. then when I put the tops on adjust up another 20mm to remain at the same height, still plenty of thread to adjust upon. then adjust down to where I wanted to be. though again I could never be bothered to measure the actual height but I suspect Im below the 12" m.net ideal bs.

and now thinking about it, actually they are all 6" springs right now, when I replaced my fronts I swaped the 6" front to to the back and my 7" 250s are in a box :P

tad lower than this now. but 450(6")/375(6") and tops

I have sparco springs and agx... not installed yet but looking for either GC or FM setup. The Racing Beat springs are tad stiffer over OEM as I understand, but will do fine.
