Default WTB: 450/300 or 450/250 2.5" springs.

I'm looking for 450/300 or 450/250 2.5" diameter springs. miata friendly lengths please.

anything between 450-500 is cool as well. I'm currently on 550/350, and I'm lookin for something softer.

I can sell you 7" 550/300 QA1 springs for dirt cheap...but depending on your shocks, they might not lower you enough.

okay then you should be good, that's what Shaikh said they'd work on. I tried them on Konis with ebay sleeves, I could probably get them down to 13" or so at the lowest due to the perches, but I want a tad lower with room to adjust. I just ordered some new shorter springs and will hopefully swap them out this weekend.

They are brand new and might have 100 miles on them once I pull them, I just put them on Saturday. They $38 new each from summit, so how about $40 shipped for the two?

I'll let you guys know. I just put them in this weekend and I'm struggling trying to get them low enough, after my drive home today they are right around 13.5" F/R. I still have a little room to adjust down so if I can get my ride height then i'll want to hold onto to them. I did just buy some 6" ebay 450/350 springs to replace them. But I want to give the QA1s one more shot.

ISC mounts will get you lowered...

I've got the same length springs... and I think you could get them down to 12" or lower...

I let brain know I'm passing on the 550s guys.

So if he doesn't like them then they're up for grabs.

That is an option but I'm rather quite cheap.

I'm going to attempt to get the height I want in the front today. I think I'm going to be able to by and in that case I won't have any qa1 springs available. Plus is turns out the ebay springs I ordered aren't the rates everyone says they are, the seller finally wrote my back this morning saying they were 218/123. So I think I'm going to try to get them to cancel to order if they are willing.

If I find out I can get my ride height, then I apologize in advance for prematurely saying they were available. I started at 14" F/R on the weekend when i first put them on and didn't see a way to get them lower, but I still have some tricks up my sleeve.

Okay, looks like I gotta the ride height I was looking for after all so I'm keeping the QA1s. When/if the ebay springs arrive I'll let know what the rates are.

Sorry for getting everyone's hopes up.
