Default WTB Springs, 600#/400#, 2.5" dia, 7" Lg, + NB top hat pair

Looking for some used springs to complete some bilstein coilover assemblies. This is a first stab at rates and lengths, so I don't see a reason to buy new - but I'd rather stay away from ebay springs that are supposedly X or Y lbs/in...

Hyperco/Swift/Eibach preferred, QA1 and other circle track stuff also works.

Whatcha got? I'll be looking for prices shipped to 44266 for matched pairs.


I also need a pair of NB top hats, if anyone has a set laying around, and especially if you are already sending my a box with springs

Thanks Psyber, I totally missed that thread - and a good idea it is... I'll pm Doward.

Still interested in what folks have laying around in the mean time.

May need to throw a post in there to remind people to list what they have. On the otherhand, since we cannot update a post to say if a set was sold, we may (with moderator permission) just start a rolling list thats copied from post to post. It seems, however, since it's a very small group of folks that might have anything, your WTB ad is totally fine. I was just pulling a reference to see if it'll help you out.

That they do, and the QA1's are even cheaper most times... I'm just being ultra-cheap for now and trying to score some pre-loved springs, as I might be doing some switching around of components, playing musical springs you might say...

Thanks Slammed, that's more the kind of deal I'm looking for - I'd jump on it if they were 600's... Someone should snag them though and pair them with some 350's in the back!

So nobody has a pair of NB tophats for me? Was hoping someone had both the 600# springs and the tophats...

If not, I'm picking up the tophats from one of the used miata parts places tonight. Still looking for those 600# x 7" springs.

Ok, nevermind bought new ones...

I should probably start assembling all this someday... The horror of 6 simultaneous garage projects.
