MR2 springs rev 1,2,3,4,5? 5 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 46
Hi guys,

Looking to tap into tribal knowledge here.

I've read in a few articles that the stock springs differed in the different MR2 MK2 Revs.
Is it true that the Rev 1 sat very high, the Rev 2 was 5mm lower and the Rev 3 onwards was 10-15mm lower again?

I always found that my Rev 1 has a monster truck stance in comparison to other cars on here. What do you guys know about this?

Thanks,
- Rex.

The monster stance could be because rev 1s came with 14" wheels
And rev ,2 and 3 came with 15"s and wider rear tyres. Dont know the exact height differences but I know shocks and springs vary from turbo to na.

Thanks for the reply mate.
But my car is fitted with Rev 3 alloys so the wheel height/ size is the same.
I'll keeping digging on Google.

Pretty sure I've read something similar. Spring sag with age/use though so it would be pretty tricky to tell what you have there now.

Spidey has a 40mm drop (I think?) and he likes it at that height, for me it was slightly too low. From memory springs that are 25mm or 30mm drop are a good comprimise between taking up the wheel arches and having to dodge ramps
