Spring Has Sprung
No sooner am I back from Wales than the mods had begun again. Today a large package of springs arrived, I got home about 5:00 & by 6:00 both had been fitted & test driven. The new springs are an inch & a half longer than the old ones & 25lbs softe at 200lbs/in. Hards to tell as I only went round the block, but it felt smoother - which was the point of doing it.
Never understood why folk put stiff springs on a car. I guess if you're running it seriously low it stops it hitting the bump stops, but then it tends to ruin the grip as well.
Anyway, mine has longer & softer springs now which means the spacers my brother made have come out.
