Faulkner springs should be able to help. I sourced some for Westy from them.

Heard back from them today.... 180 quid for a pair of springs
Seems that 70mm id springs are hard to find off the shelf

Jarno, where did your friend source his?

You mean these ones?

They're 300mm and I need 230s, but they may work

They are Eibach and Öhlins. But not off the self...

Springs hight doesent affect ride hight. If you leave your car high, I reckon 300mm spring would fit tho. Ride hight is determined where do you leave your  lower mount
