Hi all, looks like i have a broken front spring, heard a rattle and on inspection i found a broken piece, so was thinking of replacing all four springs with the sports version as mine has the standard suspension and not the lower sports, looking at online car parts there are a few different lengths on offer, i was going to get the sachs for oem quality and keep the original shocks as they seem fine, but would like to lower the car just a bit, question is do i just go for the lowest height that is offered on the sachs catalogue, and also should i replace top mounts and any other rubbers while im there, any info would be great and appreciated

Have a look at eibach.
I'm not saying buy them, but it gives an idea of the different types available.
Including adjustable ride height.
Have looked at eibach but thought maybe the sachs would be a little softer and easier on the original shocks, but am struggling to find actual spring lengths for original sports springs
