Cheers for all the help. I'll see how my finances are and if I have been a member for a year yet (must be close if not already) and take it from there. Leaning to the PZ suspension though as I'd like to keep it original

Just FYI, the Shopkeeper (Ian) has just advised that there are 2 full suspension kits left. TWO people are currently enquiring after kits, but have not yet paid or committed to purchase. Once those 2 sets are gone, that's it!

Unless there are people with sets from the group buy they'd be willing to part with...

Jeags - your renewal, with the 3 months bump from the COVID response, will be due by 1st January.

I think I'll have to bite the bullet and get the set whilst I still can. I am aware I think I may be about a month off for qualifying for the members price, but do you think I'd be able to buy now/reserve/leave a deposit until I have 12 months confirmed for the members price? As stated before, It is what made me buy the car and would be a shame to have to fit an aftermarket solution, especially at the price for a 1+ year member.

cheers for all the help!

Did you miss Xamtex's post about finding a spring which I presume is a brand new PZ suspension rear spring?

No, but I'm worried about it not sitting right (i.e. the old spring sagging more). And if another one goes, I'll be stuck then.

A used spare would be a better match for the remaining, unbroken spring.

I'm just worried about the other springs and when they'll fail. The car has 74k miles on it so don't know how long they usually last. I don't really want to fit aftermarket suspension as the prodrive suspension was what made me buy a prodrive edition rx-8 after my first failed.

Is the best way to contact the shopkeeper via the contact section in the club shop? I've fired an email asking on Friday, so will hopefully get a response soon.

Anyone know how long a response usually takes from the shop? I emailed and pm'd last week and haven't had a response yet. Just want to ensure I haven't missed out on the suspension! Cheers.
