My thoughts would be to buy a budget lift kit if you are looking at lifting your car and not spending much money - which I'm guessing is the point of looking at alternative sources of springs. Jimnybits ones are supposed to be cheap but ok.

Otherwise, what's your reasons for looking at alternative sources of springs?

mine is already lifted but i just wanted to know what can be fitted , what lift they give & if they are any good as these things are good to know & im sure ive read on here somewhere about lada samara springs but can't find where it is & what was said

there has got to be springs out there that are suitable for the job & someone must have tryed them

mine has 3" springs at min but if there was a cheap set of springs that would give it 4" i might be interested in a little upgrade

I did have springs inside springs, this was done by a previous owner. I removed them as it was bloody dangerous, and the tails had sheared. I have now fitted jimnybits springs, for the money im very happy with them, and the springs come handed, and the jimny sits nice and level. Ive also fitted b4v spacers, I just need to sort out the castor, looks like an order from ora is in the pipeline.
