So a full swap of springs all round then!

I will happily help if I can and if timing works (morning only is possible for me) probably best PM to sort something out.

I take it from your Avatar you have (had) an Exige S1 ?

Unfortunately I am in Edinburgh tomorrow so won’t be back until 5pm so that may not suit anyone?

Yup had a red S1 Exige which I should never have sold!

After 5 will be too late for me tomorrow, sorry. Might be able to do Saturday. However, if you've 2 broken springs... What condition are the dampers in? Might not be great.

Hey good luck Craig, plenty offers of support, I'm sure between the SE'ers will get you back up and running soon!

That's a fine looking car in that colour too. Was that long ago you ran it?

Hi Woody, Cambuslang so close by. If there are any wee blats planned anytime drop me a PM. I'm away this weekend but generally around with work being light!

I think Red was the best colour but I am biased.

Ok change of plan.. A couple of you have said the Nitrons could need a rebuild which is a fair point. So going to change the lot for a fresh set of Bilsteins. If anyone is around tonight after 5 to help give me a shout 🤪.

Big thanks to Dom and Tenkfeet and phone support from woody last night. Parts department let us down (I didn’t know we needed different washers for the fronts).

I’ve not posted on here for a while but good to see the old SE spirit is still alive.

Thanks for everyone’s input 👍
