Racing Beat Spring Set 79-85 RX-7, 14080
Racing Beat has designed suspension coil springs that are suitable for a street or track use. This complete set of front and rear suspension springs were designed specifically for the 1979-85 RX-7 by Racing Beat's engineering staff. Ideally suited for use with either the OEM shocks, or your favorite aftermarket units, these springs interchange exactly with the stock springs on the RX-7.
These springs have been designed with a rate increase of approximately 20% (front - 145 lb/in) and 20% (rear - 112 lb/in) with a modest drop of 1-inch (front and rear).
If your car is still running on the original shocks, it is certainly time to consider a replacement! We do not suggest installing aftermarket performance-based springs on a set of tired high mileage shocks, as this may produce a "springy" and bouncy ride. If you prefer to keep the ride quality of your car more "stock like", you may wish to replace your old shocks with a set of Mazda units, or an equivalent set of aftermarket OEM style replacements. However, if you wish to noticeably improve the handling performance of your car, combine a set of new springs with a set of aftermarket Tokico or Koni performance shocks. Although the ride quality will become noticeably firmer, the handling improvements will be a much-welcomed improvement.
These springs are available separately for replacement or special applications: Front (PN 14018) or Rear (PN 14019) - contact Racing Beat for ordering information.
The SRX-7 (SPEC-7) Rules (Dated 1/1/05) allow for the use of these springs in this class. In addition, the use of Racing Beat front sway bar Racing Beat Part Number 14100 is also allowed.
Prices shown are for a complete set of four springs.
