    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.
