Default 1997 V70 T5R front springs

One of the front springs has broken on my ex police V70 T5R.

Tried ordering a new pair but my chassis plate info does not match the system and I'm getting no where.

Does anone know what part number springs should be fitted to this model?

I do not want to fit a lowering spring set as the car already sits very low and is nice and firm as is. If I can not find replacments I will have to take the car off the road for a while to get the springs copied.

Any ideas?

1997 V70 T5R? Never come across that before... to my knowledge it was just T5 or R with T5R being solely used on the 850 models.

The car is has a manual box.
Springs are iron oxide with no markings so not much help there. I will check the engine code.

Thanks

Exclamation Front Springs

Hi
I have been told the Police T5 can be a bit of a hybrid using heavy duty springs and heavy duty wishbones maybe from the diesel as it is heavier do check the model there was
not a V70 T5R Regards alan

It is one of the very first v70's and comes up sometimes as and 850 T5R and otrhers as a V70 R

The suspension is (or was) quite stiff and it does sit nice and low.
Hopfully Volvo will be able to sort me out with the correct springs.
