Default WTT my ground control springs(500f/350r) for yours with lower spring rates.

Ok, so i bought some GC coilovers(500f/350r), and i decided they are going to be way to stiff for the shitty roads we have here, and i doubt my car will get to the track at all this year.

So I'm going to try to trade them for some springs with lighter springrates like the ones TDR sells (375f/250r). Mileage is unknown but they look to be as good as new, and judging by the perches they came with they weren't used for too many miles at all.

All offers with springs that are in similar condition and have lower springrates are accepted. This is a straight trade.

Ill throw some pics up later tonight for those interested, id much rather do this deal with someone reputable on mt.net not some noobie thats going to try and rip me off.

Remember this is for JUST THE SPRINGS, not trading perches and none of that, just my high *** springrate gc springs for your lower springrate gc springs.

Thanks.

Nate.

Edit for photographs of said springs:

You'd be surprised how comfy stiff springs can be with the right shocks and bumpstops.

Problem is the perches these shocks came with are for KYB's. Ive done my research(too late albeit) and found out this is above the upper limit of the AGX's the perches are meant for. Ive looked into it and the easiest/cheapest way for me to finish this setup will be to just trade for some milder springs.

Hopefully someone with a nice setup wanting to upgrade springs will trade me, heh. If the person is reputable enough on this forum id even consider shipping them, letting the buyer install them, and then they can ship me the ones they took off.

Put your 350 in front, and buy some 250's for the back.
Sell your 500, I am sure they will sell fast as that is a desireable rate.
Problem solved!

Eh i didnt have them four weeks ago

Also Zabac- sounds like what ill do if these dont sell, the front and rear are interchangeable? I know very little about the miata suspension. Im gussing if they are interchangeable than two of mine are bigger because they are the higher spring rate ones? Makes sense heh.

You can swap them if they're the right length. How long are they?

Not at this point in time, im hoping to trade straight across for the same springs with softer rates. Ill even be interested in trading just the 500 rate springs for some 250 or so rates. Heh only if they are in fact interchangeable- there seems to be about an inch difference between the two. The shorter ones are the fronts, and the longer ones are the rear i believe(please correct me on this if im wrong). Id guess i couldn't just trade two of them, because of the different lengths.

Default I have these

You have exactly what I'm looking for! And I have yours!

I have a GC setup with 375/250 springs with ~2k miles on it. I'm looking for the 500/350 springs.

For the ground control springs, the front are 6" long, the rear are 7" long.

My springs are still on my car but I don't drive it daily so we can work something out for sure. I'm in California so shipping shouldn't take too long. I'd also be willing to Paypal you the full value of the springs (as a deposit) if you want to ship yours first.

I can post a pic of my springs when I get home from work.
