BEC springs

As per title really, after some front springs for a BEC. Don't want too soft, who sells them? Have looked for some but obviously not looking in the right places, what poundage should I be looking for?

I have always got mine from www.dfaulknersprings.com. They are really helpful and do just about every rate and size you would ever need.

If its 1.9" springs your looking for I have 2x 175lb and 2 x 250lb (i'd have to check) from my Protec Shocks for sale.

175lb would be too weak i would think on the front of a CEC or BEC

200lb would probably do but they're 2.25 ID.

Would 200lb springs be okay for the front of a BEC?

I have 250lb front, 200lb rear on mine, comfy on the road but a bit soft for the track I recon.

So for the front around 200-250lb and around 200lb for the rear on a BEC then? Did I mention I weigh 18 stone?

Hmm some of those figures seem a bit high.

BEC Furys run 180/130lb as std. I recently changed mine for 200/180 and I've just bought some 225's should I want to go stiffer on the front.

Hi

It needs a bit more info before spring poundage's can be recommended. like what sort of angle the dampers are at and where they sit in relationship to the wishbones. Without this info you could be 50Lb-75Lb out of the ballpark. IE throwing money away.

Cheers Matt
