Default Koni Blue Lowering Springs

$80 + $13 shipping & paypal fees (if using a credit/debit card). Shipping is flat rate box via USPS Priority Mail.
No dibs, first person to paypal the money to me gets them.
You're welcomed to pick them up if you're in San Antonio, TX or neighboring cities.
PM me if you're interested.

Car felt great with the springs on but I upgraded to Ground Controls 1-2 months ago for the track.

This is how the car looked with the springs on Koni Yellow shocks...



This ad comes with everything pictures. Front & Rear springs, all stock lower perches, stock rubber spring covers, and dust boots for the shock. If you want part outs of the lower perches or whatnot just PM me and we'll work something out; otherwise they're free with the springs.

Do you know the spring rates on these? These are factory replacements, right? I mean, not for use with coil overs...similar to Flyin Miata lowering springs, or Racing Beat lowering Springs.
Do you also have ride height measurements?
I put Racing Beat lowering springs on my car with Koni shocks and I think it's a bit too low, and I'm not too fond of the spring rate.

I don't know the exact spring rates. Yes these are factory replacements on the oem lower perch and tophats. I contacted Brian at Good-win-racing and he said off the top of his head he thought they were 15% stiffer than stock.

NB Standard 162f / 118r
NB Sport Package "Hard S." 168f / 124r
NB Mazdaspeed MX-5 215f / 158r
NB Tein S.Tech 235f / 173r
NB Flyin' Miata 342f / 228r

If using NB Standard + 15% you get...
NB Koni Sport Springs 186f / 136r (rough estimate)

Bump. From what I have read the springs will not work on the NA Miata OEM spring perches. If you use the NB lower-perches that I'm including you should be able to use these springs on your NA Miata but no guarantees there.

Shipping fixed. I found a flat rate USPS Priority mail box to ship it out in for $13 with delivery confirmation.

Yeah, these would work on stock NB shocks. I wouldn't recommend it for the long haul but if it's a temporary fix for coilovers later I'd say go for it.

I PM'd you back earlier today with PayPal and payment info but I don't see anything in my Sent folder after verifying. Let me know if you haven't gotten it yet.
