    That is definitely not a good sign.

    Tanabe GF210 rates F/R: 7.9 / 3.7 kg/mm i believe. The numbers are straight from their site, but they don't mention units.

    Good catch, table updated. At the top of the table on their website, it says: "all spring rates are measured in kg/mm"

    Thanks for getting the info. I'm actually really interested in the King Standard ones. If they are the same height as the 89+ springs that are just a tad lower than the pre89 springs that would be the perfect drop for me. Have you seen anywhere that sells them in the US though?

    Once you find the rate and length and diameter of the springs Summit racing has "universal" springs. I've used them to lift vehicles before and even a few custom projects.

    Well guys, thought I'd throw an update in here. I got in touch with Ground Control, and they were able to make a set of adjustable spring perches to match some Koni Yellow struts. I just got them in the mail, and they're looking pretty spiffy.

    Honestly I'm not sure how "custom" this was or not. I got the impression in their email that they only had a handful of kits remaining, so they are able to make them, but haven't listed them on their website. If you're interested, give ground control a call and see what they say.

    Springs (as with all GC products) are universal sized Eibachs. This set came with 800 lb-in fronts and 500 lb-in rears. The beauty of this setup is that you can buy any universal 2.5" ID spring and it will fit this kit, making the spring rates pretty much infinitely adjustable. You can order a spring in the correct height and diameter, and specify what spring rate you want, making it variable from super stiff to plush.

    OK, good to know. How do you find out the height of the spring that you want?

    I didn't specify, I just asked for a set for the MKIII Supra. They provided 7" tall front and 8" tall rear springs.
