    Hi,the last coil at each end is butted up to the next and the ends ground flat the same as normal coilover springs.What is the id of the springs,if they are 2.5 in you can get them off the shelf i think from Rally Design Cheers Pete

    The spring pan has a recess for the spring tail to sit in but the manufacturers aren't happy to make a spring until they know for definite how the ends finish

    Try calling a firm called Tested Spring in Oldbury. They may know. They will also make them.

    Spring Manufacturer - Tested Spring - Oldbury, West Midlands

    Or failing that, send a PM to Enfoman on here. Seeing as he runs a firm called Zodiac Motor Spares, I would imagine he will know.

    I haven't taken them off the struts, but thats what they look like. I have the struts here only as I have "borrowed" the hubs from them to convert my HC viva front end. you're welcome to the struts and callipers if they're any good to you?

    Bottom


    Top



    They are in better condition than the photos show although callipers would need rebuilding.
