Would you mind telling me what sort of competition springs you put on your car (make, part#, etc), if you can? I am curious to know what might be out there, since options seem limited for uprated springs on these cars.

Thanks - (another) Kevin

Thanks - that has been my experience as well, no one seems to have the competition HD Bilsteins, and I am prepping a 450 for rally, and would want those. Do you recall where you sourced yours?

i don't recall the place, but you might call b&g and ask them, but the main thing
is getting the top rated hd shocks, not just hd, the shock site will have the top
rated racing shock for your car.
i was raised in northern california.
