Would that be the PDL mentioned in the regs then that you are saying to contact Phil Littlewood etc

Ive contacted Eibach today and they are going to look into weather the springs are still available as the guy I spoke to on the phone didn't have a clue LOL

The kit that Phil supplied to the guy that I bought my compact front came with Suplex springs iirc. Re - valved Bilstein dampers,,, and springs that fit the std setup. I'll check tomorrow,,, they're lying in a box in the shed.

I had the full challenge suspension,

sent the front legs back to phil @ PDL to convert them to coilovers.

He wanted to buy the Eibach springs back off me as he said he couldnt get them anymore and had people wanting them.

However I wanted to keep them for a mates RR car.

Apparently Eibach dont make them anymore? However you might be able to get them direct :?

Tom,

Ive contacted Eibach directly and they said Power Developments (PDL) had sole rights to distribution of them springs and to contact them directly regarding them and wouldn't give me any more info on them so I think another solution may have to be sourced !!!!!
