 which should have the spring rate



The springs themselves will have the spring rates screenprinted on them.  numbers will look like 0000.000.0000 . The first chunk represents the height, the second chunk represent the inner diameter, and the last chunk represent the stiffness.  So if you have 0700.250.0250 you have a 7" height, 2.5" ID, and 250#.


No need to rely on waiting to hear back.  Sometimes something as simple as a misspelled name can mean the original invoice is lost in the digital underworld.

Hey Ace,


if i was going for a 90% pure track car, what numbers would i be looking for?  I remember looking at the IE site and their “best handling setup” said something like 350# springs.  I’m willing to go that stiff, i just don’t want to flare the wheel wells.  They still look really good w/ no rust and i can bring myself to cut them.  So i live w/ smaller tires.

Okay folks sorry for the delay on coilover info there has been a lot of interest, Ireland wasn't able to find the original invoice, but here is what I gather:


A Ground Control setup is $2200 + cores without front brakes


current Ireland stage 3 coilovers are $1500

rear perches + springs + shocks from Ireland is $505

front big brake kit from Ireland is $665


with that as a lo0se reference, I think the setup I'm offering was at least  $2670 in parts new


I'd really like to unload the complete setup with the front brakes for $2200. Call me out if you think that is totally off base, just looking for these to goto someone who'll put 'em to good use them and at a fair price.


As Andrew stated these are early Zinc-plated Stage 3 coilovers from Ireland, they've hardly been driven on my car and are essentially brand new. Spring rates are: front: 0700.250.0350 rear: 0800.225.0275

Also found a Fireball XR700 ignition, any takers at $50?


As an FYI, The XR700 comes with an optical trigger wheel setup for the distributor to replace the original points setup.  The ignition box isn't much good without it.
