Are the track pack springs the same as the LSS springs? I'm wondering if you can pair the track pack adjustable Bilsteins onto some LSS springs and mount them in the same mounting points as a LSS setup.

On the Elise, the Track Pack springs are stiffer than LSS, at least from what Ive read here http://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f139/factory-track-pack-recommended-set-up-20946/

They are as stiff as the Exige springs.

Id also like to know form others how much lower the car can go compared to LSS, or LSS + Lathe. Im still looking for my 1st Elise, and wondering if the Track Pack make getting something like a 60th Anniversary a better buy, v/s a Normal Elise SC. I prefer stiff, low, and little roll.

Msink, the 60th anniversary is a grate buy. If you are considering getting one, do it.

As for the springs, I don’t know.

The Track Pack for the Elise is also 270/370

The problem I see is that the link I posted shows the Elise springs being stiffened from 243F and 343R which is neither stock nor LSS. Anyway....

Can the Exige track pack springs be used on an Exige sport pack yellow bilistein shock?
If so is there any difference in ride height?

I thought track pack springs were progressive wound? They certainly dont feel apprceaply stiffer than LSS.

I would say the Track pack (the adjustable dampeners) are alot better as you can change the setting for road/track plus I believe they are progressive (two springs with different spacing between the coils. I had the LSS and I wouldn't recommend them.
