Default WTB: Tein Spring - 9kg/mm OR 8kg/mm

Picked up a set of Tein SS. Came with 7k/6k spring rates and wanted to either switch to 9K/7K or 8K/6K.

Anybody have either the 9k spring or the 8k spring laying around? PM me!

Bump.

SO we just measured the springs and double checked the rates and it turns out that the spring rates on the coilovers we have are actually 7k/6k, NOT 8k/7k like we were told..

So I'm either going to need an 8k or a 9k spring to replace the front spring, and depending on which one it is I may have to transfer the 7k one we have to the rear.

Went ahead an edited the first post. I need either an 8k or 9k spring!

Whoops, looks like you have the factory spring rates already then.


I replaced my rear springs with a longer set of 6K springs, but something like these might work for you and would save a little over the cost of factory Tein springs:

http://www.evasivemotorsports.com/mm...Code=TP708K150

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tanabe-PRO21...04b92a&vxp=mtr

where Tein springs are always $60 each: SA080-01150

It's hard to find 70mm ID springs otherwise.
