I wonder where these are made???MOT garage is getting me a pair for £86+vat each, gotta wait 4 days for delivery from Germany. Didn't think that was too bad for oem.
Makes sense. Maybe I was getting confused with lowering kits where the same part numbers are specified.:The 55's use different springs than the other 171's, heavier engine I guess.
I'm upto 60k miles, if the oem last another 60k I'll be happy.
I wouldn't lower either (speedhumps!) but interestingly, this comapny offers the same Sachs product for all standard R171s:Did think about H&R lowering spring kit but 40mm drop was a bit too much for my liking.

I think all 171s use the same springs, but I might be wrong.
If you wanna use my reg to see if they are different feel free to use it. V8MGMETA: Reply from Ebay:
Thanks for your interest. These springs originate from Germany and the brand is Suplex. Can you forward me your vehicle registration number so I can check compatibility for you?
