MV6 LSC (Facelift) front springs
« on: 02 October 2018, 18:50:41 »

I know they are rarer than rocking horse plop but does anyone have a set of front MV6 LSC springs with lowish mileage on them?

Was under the impression that Pre-facelift MV6 springs are not the same as facelift ones.  :-\

From memory pfl was lowered just using shocks
Facelift was springs and shocks

Problem is age / mileage... PFL MV6 springs are going to be 18 years old with around 200K on them...

Piffle... the shocks only function is to suppress spring bounce. Using shorter shocks to compress the standard springs would destroy the shocks in short order ;D

Yes mate it was me and I'm still here just lurking in the background lol don't always sign in. The springs where off a pfl but only had just 90k on them and where in good order sold them about a week ago could not believe i had them so long to be honest but you just never know. Just got rid of the shell from the elite and left all the front suspension on cause i didn't want to store it as long as the other lol same i left a few bits on it but i can't keep stuff forever and i still have loads in the garage big clear out soon i think. Thanks dbg for thinking of me though alawys happy to help fellow oof'ers

Probably better off with a pair of Eibach front springs then a pair of second hand ones.
Chances are they will sit just as high due to the second hand springs not been knackered  :-\
