Nobody likes the tuna here, *******.

Switching to the full NB setup you already have will drop your car an inch or so. Try that.

Then you can ask me how I know where to buy a full set of adjusters and springs for $60. I'd tell you now but you are being quite a dick.

You're just teasing the OP right now. You've already read a post or two and know the answer just like most of the forum members. Four coilover adjusters and a set of 400/300 springs brand new for about $60 plus shipping all day as many as you want.

Or buy cheap springs from some cheap place like Summit Racing... ;o) That's OP's first clue.

I bet if you search a few of Concealer's recent threads, (particularly about spring rates) the answer will become glaringly obvious.

So - after all this researching... 7" or 8" length for 300# rear spring on a MSM Bilstein Sport on a '00 NB (street driven with a slightly lowered look)?
QA1 has both, but was questioning the shorter stroke and perch of the Billi sport rears.

I think 8" would be too long, so 7".

Check and double check the slot they milled for your "measurements" (they're worthless). They mill that after cutting the threads, and had enough burrs to gum up the threads pretty bad once weight was put on the springs.
