    Default Rear springs?

    My Vec SRi petrol failed its MOT at the weekend on a broken rear spring.
    Fairly straight forward job, so going to do it myself.

    Can anyone recommend somewhere online to get them from?

    cheers

    Yes the SRI does have sports suspension. Its already dropped by 15mm.
    Most people on here who change their springs go for Eibach Springs which state they drop the car by 30mm, but on a SRI it will only drop it a further 15mm.

    They are worth buying if you need to change as they are alot stronger than original Vx springs. Dont buy vx springs.

    Just back if you want all depends on what you want to do but for the price 2 rear springs will cost you it might be best to pay a few £ and get complete kit.
    But i have a set of rear SRI springs from a 2.2 Diesel SRI not sure if they will fit ok there yours if you want them (used but not broken )

    You can just do the backs as it only drops it by 15mm, so you wont notice a massive difference. But the fronts will break eventually cos vx springs are poo. So you could change the fronts at a later date.

    Pretty sure all of the rears of the hatch are the same, the only differences are that the estates/signums have a higher load rating
