Spring Exchange

So I know other boards have something like this, but since we are all local and/or have some direct connection via various clubs or events, I thought it would work very well here on RPA.

If you have a collection of springs, and might be willing to exchange them with another racer for cash, prizes, or most likely other springs...  Post the details here.  If you are looking for a set to try something out, post it here...  Let's see if we can't get a little flexibility going for RPA members to try out various setups...

Thanks Ethan, beat me to it.  Yea seriously I think RPA can be a huge help with this.  I'll start since I'm sorta looking

Here is what I'm looking for.
500lb - 6" (can do 8" if needed) 2.5" diameter
550lb - 6" (can do 8" if needed) 2.5" diameter

I have a set of 400lb (Hypercoils I think), 6", 2.5" diameter I can trade.  Though to be fair Mike Ancus really wants them since he asked first.  But I dunno figure I'd throw this out there and see what works.

Need to come off whenever I can get time to change the suspension (2 week lead time unless you want to help):

Eibach 2.5" ID 550lb 6"
Hypercoil 2.25" ID 600lb 5"

On the shelf:

Eibach 2.5" ID 700lb 6"
TCKR VVS 60mm ID 450lb 7"
Hypercoil 2.25" ID 800lb 5"
Eibach 2.25" ID 400lb 7"
Eibach 2.25" ID 750lb 5"


And a more BMW specific TCKR VVS "shorty" 30400R which is 400lb rear spring that sits on the factory rear trailing arm spring location.  Similar to a 2.25" ID on one end only...

I'm not sure what's down at McB yet that I can pick from.  But I'm quasi interested in these  ;)  I should know in a few days (less someone has a pair just laying around).

I have these for you, as soon as I order the 2.5x8x700

Would be willing to loan out for temporary testing but nervous of giving up this setup:
0700.250.0600
0700.250.0550

Its a known setup on my car that is predictable in the dry and really good in the wet. I need a solid test in the wet (well and dry) before I would be willing to let it go.

If you want to test n tune with them - take them.  If they don't work give them back, if you want to keep them we can work out a price or a trade.  I'll PM you about it, but as far as I'm concerned that is all for after the put it on your car and see if the setup works bit.

Yes, but the 2.5" ID 700lb and the 800lb 2.25" ID springs went with my AD's when I sold them.  I only have the short litte 5" 750lb 2.25 ID springs left along with some softer stuff...
