Coil springs

Postby jmc on Thu Mar 16, 2017 9:56 pm

My 2.5 could do with new coil springs .
There are a few on eBay with varying prices which probably means varying quality so wondered if anybody had any thoughts on replacements?
Thanks

I've recently bought a pair off ebay from Jimmy bits. Meant to have been 2inch lift but only gave 1 inch nice and firm though and after 200 mile on them they seem good bit firmer than stock springs but have made up for the lack of rear antiroll bar. Haven't tried them off road yet though.
