Good idea, but I don't think they're allowed: (archive)

In Reply to: what about the euro springs? posted by eric g. on September 18, 2000 at 11:10:54:

The stock category says that springs must be 'Standard'.

--- quote ---

12.4 Standard Part
An item of standard or optional equipment that could have been ordered with the car, installed on the factory production line, and delivered through a dealer in the United States. Dealer-installed options or deletions, except as required by factory directives, no matter how common or what their origin, are not included in this definition. This definition does not allow the updating or backdating of parts.

So, good idea, I hadn't thought of that. But I don't think that would officially work. I suppose if one were particularly evil they could point out that to the untrained eye the euro springs and the US spec ones would probably look identical. But I'm not looking to sell my soul to do this...I'd just like things to be a little more taut than stock.
