Thumbs up Swift Competition Spec Coilover Springs


We are going to have a group buy on Swift Coilover Competition Spec Replacment Springs. These springs have a longer stroke and most linear rate you can find in the market place today. Using Swifts unique spring material, H5S.TW, Swift engineers are able to wind springs that have thinner wires, wind less coils than the competition and have a spring that is lighter overall for reducing unsprung weight. These are the same springs used by many of the JGTC teams and the Super Taikyu Imprezas in Japan.



Swift makes the following sizes of springs to fit your coilover applications:
Inner Diameter:
60mm (BLUE)
65mm (Brown)
70mm (Green)

Free Length:
6 to 11inches

Rates:
3kg/mm to 34kg/mm

NOTE: Certain Spring combinations are not available.

Price Breakdown for springs is as follows:
1 Spring - $95USD Shipped
2 Springs - $180 USD Shipped
4 Springs - $340 USD Shipped

If an individual purchases more than 4 springs, then please PM us. If you would like to purchase Swift assist or helper springs then contact us for what is available from Swift. We are also able get thrust sheets as well.

If you are unsure about a size that is offered, you can either PM us or email us at sales@mann-engineering.com.

When ordering, please tell us the inner diameter, free length, and rate that you are looking to purchase.

Prices for this Group Buy will end on the last day of June and we will stop taking orders and begin to fill them. Springs will ship in the middle of July as we begin to receive the springs from Swift.

To participate in this group buy, we require a minimum of a 50% deposit to be made ahead of time to guarantee your spring or set of springs. If we run out of a particular application, then you will be informed of immediately. We accept Paypal at sales@mann-engineering.com, Visa, MasterCard, money order, cahsier's check. CA residents will be charged 8.25% sales tax. Your springs will not be shipped until the full amount is received.

If ordering from our website, you will be charged shipping and the regular price of the spring. Please mention that you are part of the NASIOC group buy and you will be refunded the difference and the shipping costs.

Please do not provide PO Box address as our shipper does not deliver to them. All packages will be insured. Please contact us for shipping rates to Alaska and Hawaii.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Thanks,
Gary

I am currently using AST Sportline 1 Coilovers with 5k/4k setup f/r. And I would like to go to 6k/5k, if I used swift 6k's are they about the same as an AST 6k would be? Or would swift 6k/5k be a more balanced setup?

Also, I dont happen to recall the measurements on those springs, I could probably find them, unless you might happen to know.

Thanks,

Nick

Hi Nick,

I have no idea how AST rates their rates. Because we have have seen some springs that claim 10k and when we measured it, it never even hit 10k. A Swift 6k is a true 6k spring. We know how to suggest variations on many of the popular coilovers like Tein, Cusco, Tanabe. But have yet to get our hands on a set of ASTs. The general consensus that I have gotten is that most people who do a direct replacement of springs on their existing setup say it is softer with the Swift Springs vs. the stock ones that came with the coilovers. So I think a Swift 6k/5k setup would be pretty similar to that of the 5k/4k that you current have. I am not because we have not had a chance to test those springs.

We do not know the sizes of the AST if you could find out, we can see what we have for it. I am pretty sure that we have something for it.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Thanks,
Gary

I currently have Tein Flex 10k/8k and would like a little better ride on the street. What do you suggest. This car is also AX 10 times a year and 2 track days a year, maybe more next year.

We have noticed that just a direct replacment of springs improve the ride quality. We just put 12k/10k on a sedan with Tein Flex and it is stiff, but it feels softer than the setup that came from Tein. You feel the spring moving with the Swift coilover springs compared to the original Tein spring. I would recommend just going with a direct swap of 10k/8k. The Swifts will probably feel softer, because you are getting a true rate spring. You can go softer if you would like. You can probably go 8k/6k, but that might be too soft for AutoXing.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Thanks,
Gary

Closing it up a bit early to start a new group buy. If you still wish to purchase springs, please contact us by PM or email at sales@mann-engineering.com. We will honor these prices to the end of the month.
