Race car spings....and for the GL-10.

The springs are too tall. Sits the car up about 1.5 inches too far front, and 2.5 inches rear. And the rear springs dont want to sit to well in the perches...so, gotta cut and mod.
The rates...be ready....1200 front, and 1200 rear. Yes, 1,200 POUNDS.
Its really quite harsh of a ride....the struts had enogh to dampen the yellow springs...250 front and 330 rear....but these....bounce. Its fine in turns and over bumps....its the DIPS that are so bad.
And my Camber is gone!!! its about 1 negative degree now...i had about 2.5 or more....so, need to go lower.

I know i have to go shorter with stiffer springs to maintain height....the original fronts were 10 or...the yellows were 9, or 8.5....and the golds are 8.
The rears were 11, and the yellow was 10. I knew the 10 silver was gonna be too tall, but i wanted to see how it handles....

The other ones were soft enough to compress, and the...eh, ive got pics with the other springs.....time to search the D: drive.

Thats with the yellow springs....on the stock ones, it sat about 1 inch higher front, and 1/2 higher rear. Ofcourse, positive camber front. LOL It had about 2~3 (somewhere in there) degs of NEGATIVE camber on the front....helps to have camber plates too.

i mentioned bronco springs erlier up
has anyone thought of the progressive springs founf on some truks??
cut them down to fit and for normal highway driving they have some give to them
for agressive driving / offroad once the spring compresses a certain amount it gets much stiffer...
just a idea..

Posted 23 March 2004 - 12:52 AM
im not going to search other makes ansuch for springs....I'll just go there and get whatever spring i need.

The Herb Adams book is a bit old, published in 94, but it covers the basics.
Good luck with your car

Dennis ex24: I do not know who makes these springs. Since they are such high rates, i got a deal on them....$14.95 for the set of four. There deal was "Race Springs, $14.95 for a set, rates must be 1000#+, and 600#+ for coil over sizes."
They do have hypercoil, AFcoil, and the other popular brands, thse look like they have been painted, but the rears are chrome plates....maybe those are hypers, I dont know. They were used springs. Pretty darned good condition too. Those yellow springs were excellent, dont know the brand, but they were used as well.
