    My son has a 1995 Ibiza 1.4 CL. Recently he bought some Spax lowering springs for it, and we made sure we ordered those for cars up to 12/95 (ref. S034009). This reference is marked on the springs themselves, so I am pretty sure we got what we ordered. When the springs were fitted, the mechanic...
