Two springs and four struts arrived today. The springs are rated at 150 lb/in which is roughly 50% stiffer than the stock springs for the car, and hopefully will be enough to raise it back close to the original ride or at least keep it from bottoming out.

I would be lost without a find I made, a website where another Aspire enthusiast describes a suspension overhaul on his car using parts which were designed for the ‘93 Ford Festiva. Using his instructions I installed the left front/strut (KYB GR-2) and spring (Gravity) and though the dimensions are not exact it seems like a good fit. Hopefully I can get the left rear shock and spring installed tomorrow, then lower it back onto the wheels and see how it sits.
