    Broken coil spring - advice

    One of my rear coil springs has broken, I'm seeing this as an opportunity to go lower...First of all does anyone know the kind of price for a single genuine spring and secondly what lowering springs are recommended and can anyone link me to a price for them?Thanks

    Go to Euro Car Parts | The UK's Number 1 Provider of Car Parts Online and In Store, enter your reg number and look at the prices for springs. They also have pricing for lowering spring kits.

    I bought an FK Street coilovers kit that goes to -100mm from eBay cost about £200 and never had any problems.
    The ride isn't too stiff either

    Sorry forgot to say I don't want coilovers. Lowering springs only, so there's an H&R 45-50mm set anyone used this?

    I bought my H&R 45-50mm springs from Eurocarparts and i'm happy with the drop, however most people aren't happy with them because they want the drop of coilovers in a spring and are disappointed afterwards however if like me you've experienced coilovers and found it hard to live with I'd recommend the H&R's.

    If you choose to replace the broken spring, don't forget to replace the other side as well, will offset the rear of your car until the new spring settles in height.
