Can't say I have noticed it much on the track in terms of feel, but looking at photos it seems I have a lot more body roll now then 2 years ago on the front. The GR-40 coil-overs are 4 years old and I have around 20 or so open track events on them. The shocks are both new within the last year.

So question is should the springs be replaced as a standard practice on some interval ??

I'm having the same problem with my Griggs coil-over springs, which are a 10 inch #350lb... I've been running them for about a year and a half and they are bowing bad... I get nasty noises from them rubbing on the sleeves when going over bumps... Its driving me crazy because I'm driving the car everyday to work... I take it your car is track driven only? Do you have any pics of them? I'm at work right now, but will post pics of mine when I get home... I'm probably going to switch them out for some hypercoils... I was told that they have a more consistent rate than the SSS (Griggs) springs as they get older...

I'm track driven mostly, but do drive it on the street mildly. Can't afford too much attention.

So what are hypercoils and where do you get them ?? If I have to switch might as well invest in something that will last longer.

Anyone else know what we are experiencing is normal for Griggs springs ??

www.pitstopusa.com has a pretty good selection of springs at pretty good prices. I've had the griggs/SSS springs on the front of my car for over 100k miles and haven't noticed any sagging or anything abnormal. I've changed spindles, shocks, and ride height a few times, but haven't had a reason to question the springs.
