reasonable price IMHO.

>>>That's definitely what I would have done, had I known.   Larry was 
supposed to be selling me 450/550 springs like everybody else uses and that's 
what I assumed I had; I bounced around for years before finally selling them, 
only to discover shortly afterwards that my problem was due to the inadequate 
spring rates.

They are okay for street use, but I push my car pretty hard and the springs 
became a factor.   The fellow who bought them from me was looking for pure 
street setup.   I did subsequently advise him to at least raise the rear 
spring rates, but as far as I know he hasn't installed them on his car yet....
