I do have 3 leaf springs, some better than others but based in West London rather than Wales so not sure you'd get them...?

Cheers

You can buy these new still, your local car spares shop will be able to order them. Kilen make them, I have had front coil springs from them and the ride height was spot on as standard. So I'd happily buy their multi leaf springs.

So, who is this supplier or is it a secret?

Bondy, out of interest, do you go to the classic car show at Cardiff stadium?

I didn't think you did as mine was the only mk3 there this year. There were a few other stunning Capris though.
Thanks for the heads up about the shows. There are some on your list that I did not know about, I'll try and check some out.
