Question

David or anyone,

I would like to get new springs for my car. The the person who put springs in the car before I got it just grabbed any sping I think. But my front end is way up in the air. I would like to road race some day so I would like stiff springs, and I would like lower than stock maybe 1"-1 1/2". I read your sight about the moog springs (I can't remember the part#). But, I didn't see anything about varible rated springs.

What is your take on this. Do you want a varible rate coil for road racing? Or is constant better? I varible is good what rate do you get and what company do I get them from?

Eibach makes a variable rate spring and they might be a good way to go.
I have no experience with them, good or bad.
The Moog coil HD street/race spring is a #6041 with some trimmed off the end.
