Selling my ZR springs and dampers, anyone interested? They will fit on Rover 25s & 200s, lowering them by 20mm and improving the handling. Apparently they will also fit on ZRs... :p

Anyone interested then PM me...

And when you find out, can you let me know. I've got a full set of ZR springs and shocks sitting in my garage and can't identify them for definite!!

As far as I am aware there is no difference between 105 shocks and those from the 160, however someone might like to tell me I'm wrong!?!?!?:ziplip:

ZR Suspension

The shocks on all the ZRs are the same, it's the springs that are rated differently isn't it? (fronts only, all the back ones are the same) If you're fitting aftermarket springs it won't make any difference what ZR they came from

what was stated by MG ZR Blue I believe was that ALL ZR cars have the same shocks regardless of engine size or fuel type, and the rear springs are the same on all ZRs it is just the front ones which have different rates!

I don't believe she mentioned the rover equivalents

If this is what MG ZR Blue was saying, I agree, have looked into part numbers before.

In reply to starlet, do your dampers/springs have any part numbers on?

Well I'm dire when it comes to working on cars so I couldn't do it! :indiff: However, they should just be a direct replacement for you 25, so if you can take one off you should be able to put the other on :)

springs

Hi, have you still got the springs?
i am wanting to lower my rover 25, only 20-30mm.
will these springs work without causing damage and not lowering them too much?

Thanks

i did this with my old rover 200 and was well worth it, transfoms the car. Took 30 minutes, you need spanners and some spring clamps
