Custom Springs

Does Anyone apart from KMAC make custom springs
i have been having trouble talking to kmac.

i have been chasing spring for an el fairmont ghia for about a month i want springs that are about 40mm lower then standard however all i can find is 30mm and 50mm (its seems bizarre that at least 4 companies all make the same thing you'd think they would want to differentiate themselves)
If anyone has ideas or recommendations they would be much appreciated

Re: Custom Springs

I will have to try KINGS then i went into the distributor in Canberra for Lovells and he told me they dont do 'custom' springs which is bizarre since i got 70mm lowered springs (lovells) for a HONDA about 5 years ago now im sure they werent off the shelf

Industrial Springs in Adelaide make springs to order at fair prices.

Re: Custom Springs

FAIRMONT1998 -How do you find the ride with the Industrial Springs
are they comparable with kings super lows
i dont think i want to go as low as you car (looks great but i like my ride softer)

Re: Custom Springs

Rather than trying to adjust ride height (in 10mm increments) have you considered adjustable spring seats that allow for a multitude of height adjustments.

I know there available for Falcons (if that's what you've got) from people like K-Mac, Pedders and Bilstein just to name a few. Either with a snap-in circlip type arrangement with about 5 selectable heights or a fully threaded collar.
