I'm trying to find rear racing springs for my 3rd gen camaro, I plan on runing CMC, which doesn't allow the use of weight jacks to be used. but I have no luck finding any rear springs without weight jacks which will fit the stock spring perch what are u guys using on for rear springs? I plan on using 190 -200lbs rate.

That's where I got mine. Pigtail on one end, I think its 5.5" od, whatever rate and length you want. For what its worth, 12" was too tall for me, and 10" was too short...

They are static-i.e. off the car. 200s seemed a little stiff on our 3rd gen, we're trying 175s this weekend. Use nylon tie wraps to hold them to the bottom perch. We used the 12 inch, without the stock spacers.

 

TC Racecars also has rated springs that fit the front. These guys tend to have about the best prices on everything, and are pretty reliable, I've been buying stuff from them for 4-5 years.

Yeah, I ended up with the 10"ers and adding some aluminum spacers on top. The plus side is they make a nice BLANG sound when the spacers settle into place.

That's true, doesn't get your attention at all when lowering the car off the jack too fast.

 

I suppose if we were smart, we'd use a chain like the Cup, Busch and trucks to limit the upward travel, so the spring didn't flop around so much, and it would be easier to jack up each side.

 

Would something like that be legal? I may try it......
