Default Spring question.....another one.

I ordered Koni yellows, ebay sleeves and 7" 450 fronts and 7" 300 rear.

I saw a thread on miata.net where Braineack had issues with coil binding in the rear with 250 7" springs. Should I go 8" in the rear????


Thanks ahead for those knowledgeable on the topic.

why 300 in the rear? most don't go over 250 with 450 fronts or go 700/400 or something.
You want your car to be tail happy?

I dont know why. So if this will be an issue then I guess I should opt for the 250's.

Ill see how these work out and if not then you can say I TOLD YOU SO!
