    How long have they been on the car prior to taking them off?

    What age is the car?

    Would you sell 1? If so how much?

    Many thanks

    not sure if they are original, they probably have another year in them.

    Mines a 2001

    you can have one, just paypal some postage. PM me if your intrested.

    Alternatively you could do what i did and by a set of eibach springs for 145 from DPM. They are only 20/25 lowering which gives a nice stance and not too hard on original dampers. Alot better than 70 per spring from stealer

    I would go with this option personally, than fit a used OEM spring that will end up the same way.

    i only took pics straight after I fitted the springs and they bedded in alot lower within a few days.

    Will take some photos later.

    I could of liked to lower mine more but I didnt want to go too low on standard shocks, Also I get arch rubbing as it is with this drop.
