I will check our spring inventory when I get home and let you know what we have so you don't have to pay full price for them... lol

Spring Length + Autocross

Yes, I would like to run the 400#x7" springs, but am very reluctant to give up my lower ride height. Those with "real" front coil-over setups could easily run the 7" front springs, as the bottom adjuster position is adjustable downward.

Thanks for sharing that thought.

You have plenty of room to run longer springs with that 8" tire width limit... so why not?

Struggling with the associated higher ride height. Want to keep the car low as possible, but the GC sleeve will only support about a 1/2" lowering of the 1" longer spring.

Thinking on that.......

GC Coil-Over Setup For Sale

These worked well, and produced some great results. I'm on to another setup now (BC coil-overs), but these should help someone do very well in STF.

Please check out my For Sale Ad here: http://www.mazda3forums.com/showthre...66#post9633466

Konis I recently bought new to replace some used ones. Everything is in perfect condition, with less than 1000 Arizona miles on them. Included are the special GC camber plates that are not available anywhere else.

Please share with anyone wanting to explore STF reasonably. Thanks.

+++++++++++++++++

Update: Sold! Thanks.
