Gt6/spitfire rear spring.


Recommended Posts

Fit a lowering block.....Easier than messing about swapping spring leaves etc.

But really it needs to settle first, so I would drive it for a while.

Don't forget the rear wheel alignment will need checking/altering, easy enough to do accurately at home

I think it's probably worth keeping the extra stiffness of the GT6 spring, so don't remove a leaf - or if you do, don't throw it away! Is it possible to do the old trick of inverting one (or more) leaf(s)? This way you keep the overall spring rate - just lower the assembled spring. Of course you'll have to machine the recess for the rubber buttons on the opposite side of the inverted leafs.

Cheers, Richard

Also worth mentioning that there is no spitfire rotoflex spring made. And a rotoflex spring is quite different to a non-rotoflex spring in terms of rate.

That's what I was about to say!
