im looking at lowering my car

i was going to buy brand new mg zr springs shocks at 200pounds for the lot.

but i have seen just the springs from a zr 1.4 for 25pounds

would these springs go on my rover 25 1.4 and make a difference to the ride height, and when i say the springs its just the springs.

so the springs would go on my standard shocks

please advise thanks

im no expert but im very sure i've read on here that they will go on but they will reduce the life of your standard shocks considerably! ideally need to replace shocks with matching springs.

Springs will fit no problem. The only consideration is that they will not sit in the cups when the car is off the ground and the wheels hang free.

If they pop out when the car is MOT'd it wil fail. However to get around this they can be secured on with cable ties.
When the car is on the ground they will be fine.

Why has the cable tie never been awarded "The World's Most Fantastic Invention" ;)
