Taliaferro Rear Race Springs
 
Has anyone used these on their NG900? Im slowly building a track NG900, wondering how these perform. Height, stiffness etc.

I've got the regular rear race springs, huge improvement and worth every penny. The koni's were just too soft, especially with the amount of weight transfer my car is putting down under acceleration. I am however going to be selling mine and going with the rear low race springs, as I want it a bit lower. Just have to roll my fender first...

These? GenuineSaab.com
Which one did you have? Were they not low? & which one are you going to and how much lower are they?

Does anyone know the spring rate of these?

neilv 02-08-2014 05:37 PM

stock viggen rear rates are ~ 300lb/in. stock 9-3 is ~240lb/in (I can check the exact rates if you want.

My guess would be 400-450lb/in at 6" length. Its a known Eibach ers spring but which one exactly is a mystery
