    Got an 1.8TQS with a failed rear spring.

    I had upgraded all round to S3 springs so need another.
    Looks like it's a dealer only job as my local GSF and Europarts came up blank

    Anyone else?

    Or has anyone got a decent one taken off a car??

    Cheers

    I have one outside under all the snow I think, threw one as it had snapped when I changed to H&R`s. Also got a pair of front shocks and springs. You can have the lot if you want.

    I would personally get some new ones than throw some used ones on again, they just snap off in time. I gave my old springs and shocks away to a member on here for nothing, since they was sitting in my garage for 2 years or so.

    Should have said they have the 3 violet spots on them.
    Are they all different? There appears to be many different versions for the S3, with all combination's of colours and numbers of spots.

    Suppose I should replace in pairs, but costs wise it's cheaper to get a lowering kit, which I'm not in favour of - don't want to go lower with the dirt-tracks I have to drive down.
