I can only find Ebach lowering springs online, even from EurocarParts.  
Anyone got Dialogys installed to check the part numbers?

Twingo 133 suspension fits - I used to have a set of coil-overs on mine.

Which springs do you need?

Both of my front springs are code f. Renault stDealers want £150 a spring! Eibach UK have a 3 week delivery on lowering springs from Germany, so going to see what I can get rapidly in the UK.

I can confirm the H&R Springs fit, although they are a complete all round set. They do lower the car subtly but its in no way 'slammed'. Driving wise, there seems to be even less body roll, but it does pick up the imperfections in the road a little more, although thats all subjective given the slightly rattly nature of the car anyway Smile

Quick update the Eibach full spring kit E10-75-009-02-22 does fit the car, is excellent quality and cost me £123.10 including postage, it did come from Germany and took best part of a fortnight to arrive. My local garage charged £80 for the fitting which I thought was very reasonable. Good job I went for the full kit as both rear springs were broken as well as one of the front ones. Just had a blast around the Derwent Reservoir and the car feels fantastic.

a week before going on holiday, on my way home from work {5am) I heard a metallic clink sound, like a small piece of metal falling onto the road, I stopped and had a look around, nothing!
having read about spring issues on the forum I decided to check........bingo!!


http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif


had a look at my warranty, gave the local Renault dealer a call, booked in, went on holiday and came back to a fixed wind!!
I was hoping that all four had gone, but it was only the drivers front!! gutted!!  lol!  lol! still got 5 months left on the warranty tho'!!  lol!  lol!  lol!
