Wow, you got money to spend. Did you enquire into eibach equivalents to compare prices?

Im not saying either is better, but I have heard eibach are very good.

Sorry humour, have to disagree with you there. Front springs on Eibach's are linear. Linear rated springs are good for circuits but very bouncy on your average road. H&R are progressively rated so they will give you a good compromise between comfort and handling.

Also, I would never recommend to anyone to change only the springs. The dampers are designed for the springs they will be used with so stiffer springs will make the dampers almost obsolete. Ask me how I know. Try a driving a V6 164 with bouncy Eibach's and standard dampers!!!!! Need to change these soon before the wife gives me any more ear ache! :rolleyes:

Have a look at this place, not sure about their heritage but the supplier deals with Italian stallions only, so its worth a loo, plus the coilovers are cheaper than the H&R or Eibach's....you can see them here Ohh they do Cam kits for the 2.0 16V as well.

As V6Junky said, you want linear susspension for the track, very little body roll with those babies on, plus they are fully adjustable ;)

If you havent considered it however, I would reccomend looking at upgrading your ARB as well, as this is a vital component when stiffening your car for track use, unfortunately they arent cheap :rolleyes:

Hum :D

P.S. Your bank manager is likely to turn white overnight and probably hang you and himself!

Well that answers that one then!!! You may prefer the Eibach's for the track then. Reason I say this is that the progressive springs have dead coils which are there to absorb small bumps in road use. The stiffness you are after will therefore not come into play untill the dead coils have compressed. Linear springs would be best for the track where you want the springs to react quickly to changes in direction and not loose and feedback through the dead coils.

Sorry can't help with the camber. :confused:
