Default FS-Ground Control 7/2.5/250lbs and 6/2.5/375lbs coils

I have a couple pairs of coil springs for sale (obviously). They were only on the car a few months before I replaced them .These springs with ISC top hats= CR members wet dream...... and my worst nightmare, but with stock top hats they were perfect.

2-GC150.64.66 front = 150mm (6 in) free length, 64mm (2.5 in) ID, 66 N/mm (375 lb/in)
2-GC180.64.44 rear = 180mm (7 in) free length, 64mm (2.5 in) ID, 44 N/mm (250 lb/in)

70 a pair SHIPPED within the 48 states.

I will ship these as a set to Canada ($140 total), but shipping will be on your dime using USPS. I will do like I do with all other expensive shipping totals, ask a bit more for shipping, then return the extra that was not used.

I'm just curious why these were your worst nightmare? I just bought some isc mounts and some 650/375 gc's to put on my autox car?

two inches too short. The car was slammed, even with the perches screwed all the way up to the point they were only on by a few threads. My car was also 2510 with driver, so you might not have the same issues. Why such stiff springs? I hope you have a killer set of shocks to control them!

I've got some race valved konis to go with the springs. Those rates aren't very stiff by autox standards. Even STS cars with much less grip are running 700+ lb spring rates up front.

Understandable. I run lighter springs but use big sway bars to compensate since I could give a rats a$$ what class they put me in.
