    Default Coil Springs Estate

    Anyone know if the rear springs on an estate are the same as hatch?

    I got a pair from a motor factors and they insisted they are correct for my car, but mechanic has just told me they are wrong, an inch shorter than originals

    Thanks

    I would have thought they would be uprated due to the extra weight of the car and what you could put in the back, but I am not certain about it though.

    It sounds like they are the wrong ones. If anything the origional ones would be shorter than the replacements as they would have settled over time and use. Can anyone check if the are the same part numbers for the estate and hatch?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
