Grant, I have a set on my Amazon that will be removed sometime in Oct [replacing with uprated set] They are good used condition and, importantly, sit correctly on the car. 20+p&p and they're yours. I'm in West Berkshire so only an hour from you and you'd be welcome to pick them up.

Hi Andrew,

If Grant doesn't go for these A: he's a fool and B: I'll have them. Cheers,

Dave

If anyone's short, I have a full set of saloon springs which I took off my car a little while back.

I was after 30 for the set collected from Peterborough.

Hi Andrew, do you have any idea how long your springs have been on your car?
Thanks
Grant

The set I have were on my car five years before being removed.
Unsure of their age beyond that.

Hi Grant, no idea...but importantly they ride correctly and sit at correct ride height. They have a nice rusty coating all over where usual paint covering has gone. If it was me I'd buzz them back, prime with a zinc etch primer and then 2x coats of epoxy/chassis black spray to bring them back to tiptop condition. Hope this helps.
