Racing Beat designed RX-8 springs are suitable for street or racing applications. Designed to offer a modest reduction in ride height, these linear rate RX-8 suspension springs interchange exactly with the stock springs. This RX-8 spring set will provide a front and rear drop of approximately .5-inch drop both front and rear. A modest spring rate increase of approximately 20% will provide a performance improvement without sacrificing ride quality.

Jim Mederer, Racing Beat's cofounder and chief engineer, shares his thoughts on designing Racing Beat's suspension springs:

"Springs are very much a matter of opinion, I adjust ride height and spring rate based more than any other thing, my taste. We won't excessively lower a car to obtain a "look". First, the car will hit the bump rubbers far too often and that makes the car unpredictable in its handling, also it makes it harsh and it is very hard on suspension components causing them to potentially fail. We therefore make relatively small changes in ride height, usually less than 1", depending on the application. We adjust that based in part on what we perceive the best way of adjusting for good handling.

Our primary goal in lowering the car is handling, and from our point a view, improved appearance is a side benefit. We don't lower the car for appearance, and then take what comes in handling. We are very cautious to not excessively lower the car such that it will cause perceived problems either in safety or unreasonable changes in ride comfort."
