    Question Springs on a budget?!?!?!?

    Hi all,
    I have a sping that has broken.
    Obviously, it is time to replace them all and lower the car at the same time!!
    Only thing is I am not exactly flush with cash at the moment.
    Who can recommend any of the cheaper springs on the market??
    Apex, GMax or Spax.
    Or does anyone know where I can get a great deal on some Eibachs???
    Thanks in advance!!!!

    If you don't want to spend big on some eibachs then next on the list would be some spax springs. They've been in the game a long time and the springs are good quality

    you could just stick on some second hand springs for now until you have more cash to get the springs of choice.. secondhand springs are cheap... i also happen to know where there are some available

    Absolutely swear by my spax set and will be putting a set of them on my estate too if/when I get it back. That said I've got the adjustable shocks and springs PSX kit. But can not fault Spax at all on mine, it drives fantastically with them.
