I'm looking for a set of springs for my 1991 Miata.  Anything stiffer than stock will do.  I'm not picky, but since they're going on a LeMons car the price has to be right.  In addition to a small amount of cash, I can also offer you the satisfaction of knowing that your parts will be on THE MOST AWESOME MIATA EVER!  If you've got a set of springs taking up space and don't mind getting rid of them cheap, let me know.

On a similar note, if you've got any other Miata suspension pieces (shocks/struts, bushings, sway bars, 15" wheels) or spares sitting around, drop me a line.

honestly do they have to be miata springs? Almost any coilover can be converted if it short enough, so we would be open to honda, toyota, vw any thing really.

Good point, if anyone has coilover sleeves or 2.5" spring, we could use those.

i could possibly hook you up on springs, if you're interested in shocks too and you have good stock replacements to trade. i'm actually looking to down-grade.

more significantly though, i'm letting go of my kazera kz-m's. wearing kuhmo ecsta xs's at the wear bars. enough life left for lots of practice. $400.

Thanks for the reply.  What shocks and springs do you have?  I have several sets of stock NA shocks, am unsure of condition though.  Our backup plan is to drill holes in one of those sets and re-fill them with some combination of ATF and gear oil.

On the wheels, unfortunately because of the 200 treadwear limits in ChumpCar and LeMons, I can't use the tires and I can't spend $400 on wheels.  If you get to the point where you want to let them go for much less (like $200), let me know.

yeah i get that. that sucks. only off by 20! i'm dropping the price to $350 after thinking about it for a little bit, but sorry i can't help you more with your project here.

i have early fm springs and koni sports. about 10k on the setup i'd say. paid $700 or so for the setup, would let it go for $450+ good stock shocks and springs. not sure if that's a good deal but i'm letting these go kicking and screaming haha. i should let them go, i need the money more, but i like them so much lol.
