    Angry renault clio sport eibach springs on vectra c?!?

    ordered eibach springs from lmf last week for my 1.8 sxi ,they asked me axel weight etc...... they were out of stock so they said they will phone eibach to see if there are any in stock there to send out direct to me, and there was two days later springs arrive. they had a vectra c label on so i thought they were the right ones



    so i booked it in to lookers service centre to get the springs fitted on saturday(11/08/07), they put the back ones on first which fitted?!?

    then they went to fit the front ones and the new spring wouldn't even sit on the top rubber mount,the mount fell threw the spring it was that wide!!

    so i phoned lmf straight away(spoke to mick very helpful) and told him the codes of the actual springs and they were a kit for a renault clio sport!!!

    so my car was in bits with a bill to pick up for nothing!!

    so they must have put the wrong label on the box! lmf are ringing me tomorrow after they have spoke to eibach.

    to be fair mick at lmf said its a big issue and needs sorting asap (how many mores boxes are like this?)

    i hope they will pay the labour costs and maybe a discount aswell ,well i will find out tommorrow i hope,NOT HAPPY THO .

    I got my set for about £250. Backs are easy to do yourself, same with the shocks. Fronts can be a pain though without the correct tools.

    I can get the springs cheap enogh, about £150 , I just don`t have the premises / equipment to change them myself so need to get them fitted at a garage. You reckon 2 hours labour would cover it ??

    A competent Garage will do it in under an hour i would have thought, as they have all the right tools to hand.
