Default Good place for 2.25" springs?

I need some 8" 2.25" springs for my coilover conversion, and I have honestly no idea where to get them.

where do you all get your springs?

Try Race Comp Engineering. They are Swift Spring dealer. That's where I got my coilover springs from.

Call Myles and ask him to get you some Hyperco springs. The quality is very good and they are significantly cheaper than Swift. And they make them in standard sizes, Swift is only metric.

Ross, there was a guy on racingjunk selling a TON of ERSs of many different rates for cheap, don't know if you've decided on what rates you want, but for testing you may be interested.

I get my Eibach ERS springs from Ground Control. CDOC also sells Hyperco and Eibach ERS springs. You can probably pick them up used for alot cheaper. Too bad you need 2.25" not 2.5" springs since all the Ground Control sets for Honda's use 2.5".

I've never found a 2.25" Swift spring catalogue. Eibach or HyperCo is the way to go. Chang at FunHondas can get you Eibach which is what I use.

They are a Hyperco dealer and great to work with. IIRC Hyperco makes a ton of 2.25" springs, way more than they do in 2.5".

The R is for Kurt Roehrig, you know, the guy behind those shock dynos

I was only talking about Hyperco. I'm not super familiar with what Swift offers. Jason from RE Suspension gave me a long detailed explanation of why they prefer the Hypercos to the Swifts, though.

They have a lot of stuff in 2.25" ID.

I don't know why it says 60mm is equivalent to 2.25", 60mm=2.36 inches.

I got my Hyperco 60 mm springs from http://www.shock-shop.com/. They also carry 2.25" springs.
