MX springs



  • Just a quicky, do 1.6 springs fit the 1.8 V6, I am guessing they are the same but some companies list them seperately.

    I am also pretty sure that I read somewhere 323 use the same struts so I would guess the same springs too can anyone confirm as 323 springs are about 40% cheaper

    Cha ching, yup, they are the same, Famine and myself compared them when we lowered my car at the weekend and they are the same :wink:

    I'd sell you my old ones but they were absolutely, unbelievabley, Ffffffffffffull of rust.



  • I am looking at some used lowering 1.6 springs but also the the 323 lowering springs, are they the same as the 323

    Dunno about the 323 sorry bud. If I were you, I wouldn't touch used lowering springs.

    I did think that but they are on the car and have seen them sat on them



  • **MX-3 springs are MX-3 springs. 323 springs (and struts) are not - the MX-3 doesn't share any compression component with the 323.

    Checked my group buy?**

    OK thanks, I have put my name to it but I have to think of getting in and out the drive so I really only need 25/30mm

    I dropped 40mm and all is good so far. AS far as I can see, you would probably be safe dropping an MX3 about 50mm before you need to worry about any scraping issues.

    P.S. I have a fairly large lip to my yard which a friend of mine got his Starlet's sump guard stuck on :wink:



  • ive droped mine by 40mm and my splitter scrapes on kirbs when i park in town but other than all good

    With a bit of luck I can get some time with them shortly and I'll keep your requirements in my ickle notepad with my own peculiar requirements…
