Default WTB/WTT: 550/350 Springs for Xida

I recently bought a new set of Xida Clubsports with 700/400 spring rates. Before ordering I agonized over what rates would be the best compromise for me, but ultimately went with the standard rates. They ride OK, but after a few days and a couple hundred miles playing with the damper settings I think the slightly softer rates are probably better suited to the kind of driving I actually do.

Anyway, I'm looking to exchange money or my 700/400 springs for a set of 550/350 Xida compatible springs.

I have a set of 600lb dual spring fronts, that's pretty close to 550lb. PM me if you are interested.

If anything, I'd prefer to go softer, but thanks.

Done. I have 550/350 and I was looking to upgrade to 700/400 some time. I'll try to pull mine out this weekend but no promises. Assuming the spring lengths for NB vs NA are close enough that the swap will work. IDK about that, might need to ask Emilio or look it up.

Rad. I'll try to pull mine out this weekend, but no promises either.

What's the age and mileage on yours? Are they Hypercos?

Yes Hypercos from Gen 1s, about 2 years old with maybe 6,000-10,000 street miles on them (it's been up on jackstands since about last june).

How's the powdercoat?

Just to confirm, these are 6" free length, 2.25" inner diameter, right? I don't think they changed spring size between Gen1 and Gen2, but it's worth asking.

Yep I believe they are. I'll have to pull them out to make sure, but they should be fine. I have 7" 6ULs on there so they should be rubbing anything, they're probably a bit dirty but I'll know more when they're out.

Checked my email, and the invoices didn't say anything about spring length so I'm assuming they're standard.

Configuration: F55R35
Front spring rate: 550 in/lbs
Rear spring rate: 350 in/lbs
Dual Spring system: Add Dual Springs
Upper Mounts: Without Upper Mounts
