    Default snapped rear spring

    changeing the upper rear arms yesterday and noticed i had a snapped spring, no biggie as still sits in ok and break was at very top.
    Car is due its MOT at the end of the month so needs changed.

    i have a GSI and it has full irmscher springs front and back, want to replace like for like and full kit will cost me a little under 300 pound but i only need the one spring however best practise is to change both, so my question is do any of you guys know of anywhere that just sells the rear springs seperate?

    tried Ebay and LMF but they just show full kits.
    any pointers gratefuly received.
    cheers
    Rob

    definately snapped chris, and defo an irmscher one. unsure how long they've been on the vehicle but they were on when i bought it and ive had it 2yr now, it has the full irmsher gear on it so im guessing somebody paid for the whole irmscher upgrades when new and its 54 reg so been on a while.
    i dont drive it hard and i dont live on pothole roads so pretty suprised myself.
    is irmscher fella his user name mate? be interested to hear his comments.
    cheers

    Recently had a full set of Eibach fitted at Demon Tweeks on a face lift sri after I had a broken front and back one. They come with a 5 year warranty if this helps.

    thanks for the posts guys, changed my other arm mid last week and found that the other spring was also snapped. thankfully they were both at top so car still driveable.
    priced eibachs and also spoke with irmscher UK. Just waiting on better price back from irmscher as supplied them with eibach price.
    Regarding them snapping, irmscher only give 2yr warranty (which suprised me) however and at a guess mine have maybe been on for 6yrs.

    Irmscher UK price £180 for pair incl del
    LMF price for Eibachs £163 for pair (which incl £10 del)
    after ringing Irmscher again and supplying them with LMF price on Eibachs....
    Irmscher new price £152 for pair which incl delivery.
