Hi guys, so my team just finished Sebring and we felt that the suspension needed a bit of work. We have a 1986 nissan 300zx, non-turbo. I'm trying to get some upgraded shocks for the car and ideally I would like for it to be within the 2X rule. I saw that according to the rules "The retail price of any NEW replacement wheel, brake caliper, brake rotor (1 or 2 piece), or shock absorber that you put on your ChampCar must be less than twice the cost of a stock replacement wheel, brake caliper, brake rotors, or shock absorber that is available on-line by a nationally recognized auto parts retail chain (i.e. - Napa, AutoZone, O’Reilly, Advanced, etc.)." My confusion here is that all of those retailers have wildly varying prices and I'm not sure which price to base the 2X rule from. Autozone alone has prices from $55 to $150 for a single strut. Additionally, what if the parts are not available from those retailers, such as for wheels, should the 2X rule price be based from the manufacturer website? Thanks!
So, after looking at the updated rules (2 August 2016), am I to believe that aftermarket springs are now zero points as long as they are the same inner and outer diameter as the OE springs, + or- .025 inches? Is that how everyone else reads that?

Will split, and take offers, or exchanges.
So were new to chump, and just bought an E30 that we are stripping. It's got a few go fast goodies that we are going to put back to stock, but when we bought the car, the 2016 rules said $10/spring. Now they are $20. Our car came with H&R springs. First off , the rule says you can replace the springs as long as the ID and OD are within +\- 1/4". Now does this mean you can run a stiffer spring as long as the ID/OD are still within spec? If our H&R springs are not legal, can I cut the stock springs down without a penalty? Can I add spacers to get the ride height correct? I tried emailing Mike M with these questions but no response yet. Thanks, Jeff
