    How much are you wanting to spend because you could go for a kit instead of just springs. The other option is just get a good quality set of springs, H&R, Eibach or KW.

    If you have sport shocks (Red in colour) then a set of H&R Races sport spring work great.

    How about an FK sport kit - approx £230? Anyone tried these?
    Looking at doing something to mine, don't want it lowered but need new shocks and not sure of a decent cheap set will be good with 100k Sport springs. Should I do the whole lot or just the shocks.
    Have a new toy with only 2 wheels now, which is a winter project so the car won't be getting any new goodies now, but these are pretty essential I guess.
