Have a look at this thread on Hybridz regarding the springs.

I'm hoping to have my car back on the road this weekend as it has been up on blocks for a few weeks while I replace all the steering components.
I got mine from HybridZ in the USA.
Since found them a little cheaper (can't remember where though), but happy with service I got.
I can let you know what I think of them soon.

Having a firm set of seats helped alot too. Before I put Recaro's in it was alot less comfortable.
First night I had the car out was a Dandenong Mountain cruise with Lurch and a few other Viczcar.com members. They made an amazing difference to my worn out and shot Koni's. Very firm ride, but much better handling.

Gav are you using the tokico springs? right now that is what im concerned about as mentioned in hybridZ
No I'm running King Springs (unknown rates). I plan on changing them. I'd recommend buying the kit of Tokico Shocks and Springs as its properly set up for those rates shocks, plus I believe they are a variable spring rate.

I used them in the circuit car for a few seasons until they wore out, set on 5 for dry and backed off to 2 or 3 for the wet. Springs used were Lovells and the rate around 400 lb/inch. I have dropped the spring seat to get the ride height I need so I can get full travel on the spring and shock.
I now have Koni adjustables in the car and am still playing to get the best setting for different applications, ie hill climbs I set the car up much softer than on the circuit.
