  2. Springs

    Just had a look at EKTA parts for rear springs. There appear to be about 16 zillion different springs for rear altea suspension (about 10 times more for Golf!) What is the difference between them? Surely some must be the same, you don't need that many different spring rates for the Altea?

    Springs not Coilovers.

    Where can I get some good but reasonably cheap springs to improve the ride?Need some good value as I already have the great car but do not have lots of spare cash at the moment. By the way well done to swiftcover.com with the way they dealt with our claim and the cheapness of the cover.
  8. Anone added just springs to an FR?

    Has anyone here added just springs to the FR instead of both new dampers and springs. Does it help much with ride quality? It has been suggested on here that the springs are the biggest factor in improving ride quality and that the dampers on the FR are sufficiently good already.

  13. Buying new car. Springs?

    Not being funny but how do I know what springs I will have on my car? I am picking up an 07 later in the week and remember the 18s looking really nice. That led me to wonder if it had already had some modification made to the original suspension. Is there any obvious way for me to tell? Thanks.
