What shocks are they Chris? Kinda difficult to suggest owt without knowing.

If you don't know, you could remove them and ask someone like Hagon if they have anything similar.

Then again, if you don't know what they are, or how good they are, or how old they are, maybe best just buying some nice new Hagons!?

They have just had everything bar the springs powder coated with the frame in metallic blue and the shocks perform fine I would just like to get some stainless springs

Those don't look half bad.

Need to know the free length, I may have a spare pair with new chrome.

That description doesn't do me any good. I need the length to compare with the spare set of springs that are on my shelf.

Exactly! That's what everyone will say Chris!

Take the spring off, measure the free length, the wire thickness and count the number of coils. Then contact someone like Hagon and I bet they'll have something suitable on the shelf.

FWIW I think your shocks look like Girling units, but frankly, they could be anything.

Girling usually used double wound springs – it was I believe Hagon who went over to single wound springs when they brought Girling out. But Hagon have now moved on and the springs and shock body now are a different diameter to the old girling/hagon shocks-don’t say someone didn’t tell you this :!:
