You guys already kept the deposit from the guy who backed out on the order. You already made 10% on the car, you better be willing to budge a little more than invoice. (I think it was 10, it might have been 15-20).... Not that it really matters, but someone should be able to get a "good" deal on this thing.... Do you think Plaza will take an IOU?

It was for the busch family, but they didn't want it because it was not a convertible.

Interesting.... I was told a completely different story.... Jeremy Clarkson was also not happy about it not being a convertible.

$800 and I'll help with the install.

The spring rates are 470lbs rear and 400lbs front. The springs are also progressive (f/r) so they are softer at lower speeds (when you need them to be) and stiffen up as they compress at higher speeds. What I find interesting about these is that the shocks/struts seem to be valved in complete harmony with the springs. They are firm but by no means harsh like a mismatched spring/shock combo.

My teins have higher spring rates in the rear (504lbs/progressive) and somewhat comparable in the front (390lbs/linear) and I consider the ride to be pretty soft. Then again its all subjective...
