Coil spring replacement
« on: June 21 2020, 08:18:18 PM »
Hi all,
Is it wise to replace the suspension coil springs being the age of our TR?


It's to my understanding the front are Constant Rate Spring


The rear are Variable Rate Springs

IF the car is sitting properly and not sagging in one or more of the corners, I see no reason to change them unless you want to lower the car like with Eibach springs, or such

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

I have no choice but to replace mine. It's sitting super low due to the age of the springs.
