    Eek snapped both front springs!!!!!!!!

    hi all was braking today and heard the biggest snap ive ever heard thought it was my time the car dropped lucky it was just out side my house. i had a look under the front and ive snapped both springs, so went to the stealers and they want £190 for the pair . i nearly cryed.. went to a locl place and he said he can get a full set of 4 pi springs for me lowered 40mm was just wondering if anyone has gone down this route and if it was a good idea or not , im not really sure cheers all.

    Sorry to hear this matey

    Although i may be able to offer you help. I have just taken delivery today of new dampers and springs. The dampers are fooked, but the springs are tip top.

    I don't know if they will fit staright off (sure they will), but how about some VXR springs? I have a full set going for very resonable prices
