Lowering Springs : ElBack : UK

So, feedup with the search and hassle of imports :-(

Anyone know the spec of our springs so I can get them in the UK. I'm sure they will be GM/Holden standard for loads of vehicles. I only need to search or ask for the right part.

Have you tried calling Eibach UK?
Eibach UK
Unit 25 Swannington Road

I bought a 2005 Mustang, and wanted springs almost immediately. Because the cars were so new, nothing was available this side of the Atlantic. However I knew Eibach made springs for the Mustang, and called them up. They were happy (at that time) to get some in for me, and at no extra cost to any similar springs they were selling here already.

EiBach UK points me to really expensive Suppliers who do not answer phone.

Found company in Sheffield who will MOD my existing for £90 or make ones especially for £165. Turns out they manufacture for most companies :-)

Pretty sure that must be the same company I've dealt with. I sell motorcycle parts & accessories for a living & they have manufactured bike springs for me in the past.
If its the same mob, they are top draw

So boo, to Eibach then. Always worth a punt though. Sounds like the company in Sheffield are the way to go. £165 is pretty cheap too. Nice find.
