Default Bilstein HD coilover setup

Low mileage fairly new Bilstein HD's, Flying Miata rear hats, ebay collars, eibach springs, and nb front hats. I was pieceing this together for my sister but she is a huge loser and I'm tired of helping her with the car. Will post some legit pics soon. I will check on the spring rates but I believe its a street/mild track rates like 450/275. You can change it up to a track setup by adding different qa1 springs from summit racing for cheap. Coilovers are not assembled, if you need help with this I can walk you through it. These parts would cost over 1k new. Looking for $550 plus shipping.

There are actually 6 coilover springs and 4 stock springs. Let me know what you dont want so you can pay less for shipping. Mazdaspeeder has dibs until 6pm tonight.

Why do the springs look warped/crooked?

Becasue that's the way stock-springs fit in the FM uppers. They need the weight of the car to squeeze them into the lip on the rear.
