    Default More bust springs (Lucky save)

    I have just changed my springs and shocks on my 05 120bhp cdti sxi. I was getting some crunching from the top mount bearing so I thought I would change the lot as I was in there.
    Parts used where Bilstein B4 shocks and Kline springs.
    Fookin happy I did


    I just have some questions about the install.

    Are new spring longer than old springs as the old ones have compressed over time on the car?
    What do I do with the ABS sensor wire connector as the B4S' don't have a mounting point like the OE shocks do?
    Hopfully the car might ride a bit better now...

    Tired springs do indeed compress sometimes. Mine were an inch shorter than the same brand replacements.
