new front springs - quick question

Recommended Posts

MOT failed on a cracked spring.

got two standard ones fitted to pass the test.

Now passed. hoorah.

 

car now sits about 1.5 inches high at the front. the springs, I am told, being standard (off a 'normal' car) are obviously longer than the Esprits springs.

 

so, dear members, I just need a new set of Esprit S3 springs.  Happy to be sent a link to a website or a recommended dealer.    I'd rather go with a recommendation.

 

No i don't want it lowered.  Too many speed humps around here as it is.

 

 

cheers.

 

Andy

If you're comparing brand new springs with 30 years old ones, then don't be surprised that it sits a bit higher. Did you tighten the pinch bolts with the car laden to the right weight (set weight in both passenger's and driver's seats, rather than just empty)?

Sj Sportscars sell their own for £31 which is £20 cheaper than I paid for original Lotus ones 25 years ago. :thumbsup:
