Triumph TR6 - Competition coil spring???

I coulsd buy rear competition coil sprigs at a very good price. Does someone have ever try these and what results on car handling.
Many thanks, JGC.

If you only uprate the rear springs i.e. stiffer rating, then the front rear/balance willbe upset. If the imbalance is such that the front suspension bottoms out in a fast corner there is strong probability of getting sudden sever understeer.

TRF advises against the "competition" spring as it is harsh for street and lowers the car 1". I also agree that front and rear sus[pensions should be upgraded at the same time. ADDCO goes to the extreme to make sure rear sway bar is added AFTER front one is upgraded. I went the middle road with TRF "rally springs" on all four corners, the =y have a good package deal at this time (until 7 JAN). Once again change shocks, trailing arm bushings and get your alignement checked.
