Default Springs

Anybody who installed aftermarket spring kits have their stock springs for sale? I have a base cruiser and would be interested in touring edition springs for my cruiser. E-mail me or post here.

I think I made a mistake..... everyone who sent me e-mail says their springs all say "std". Maybe... there aren't any different spring rates between models afterall. The reason I'm not looking for aftermarket springs is all seem to lower/change the rake. I use my cruiser for work and am a service tech. I cover the southern tier of NY and some northern PA. I use both interstate and small 2 -lanes to travel from account to account and as such don't like the idea of lowering the car. I'm contemplating possibly adding a strut bar and larger sways. I know I can get progressive rate springs but really dislike dropping either end 1.5 -2.0" and driving as I do.

DEFINITELY recommend getting heavier sway bars and a strut tower brace. Also consider better rubber even if you don't change wheels. The improvement in handling will be NOTICEABLE!
