Hey guys I have for sale a set of 1st gen lowering springs that I forgot I had laying around. Mazda Gremlyn was the original test fitter for these springs (http://forum.mazda6club.com/suspension-brakes/247224-sold-espelir-lowering-springs.html). Specs are quoted below from the original post.
Beforethey are quoted as having a drop of about 1.25" up front and 0.8" in the back. I had these on my hatch and they looked pretty good. I don't know the spring rates, never did actually, but they were a pretty decent ride on the street, and did fine on track and autox.
I never got around to installing them as I ended up selling my car shortly after purchasing these. Looking to get $75 plus shipping for them or local pick up in Los Angeles.
