Don’t need six of them, so the ones on first picture are for sale. 100 Euro. Can post them. Don’t know exact postage (shouldn’t be expensive), but will find out if someone’s interested.

Product Description

These coil spring conversion kits have progressive rated springs and are purposely manufactured for the mini for a more comfortable and predictable ride especially on 13" wheels. Taking the harshness out of the ride that the old rubber cones gave. Taking your suspension into the 21st century. These springs come in 3 different ratings, Standard, Hard or soft.

The full kit comprises of coil spring conversions of your choice, ride height adjustables and knuckle joints, or you can simply have the coil spring conversions on their own as a set of 4 or maybe just front or rear.

The hard ride which are the red springs will give a 10% harder ride than the standard ones.

Note: We recommend the use of our adjustable ride heights with our coil conversions - A lesser quality ride height adjuster may have slacker threads resulting in self adjustment.

not wishing to spoil this thread, i got a set of 4 blue (soft) from Huddersfield spares - there is a difference between front and rear rates. rear are softer. there is a code number *painted* on the flats of the spring where it mates with the spacer or subframe,

ymmv.

These are rear ones, as per title. Of course there is a difference between the front and rear springs. Not only in rates, they have also slightly different dimensions. Don't see any codes, but the ones I'm selling are definitely rear.
