Hi all. a mate wants Paras in his Spanish 88 Ligero diesel and he does search for the best available quality.

After reading this post, I may understand that http://www.owensprings.co.uk/index.php/parabolic-springs are the best, together with the Pro Comp.

Is there any other brand of PROVEN quality? In Spain we do only have the originals from Santana or from the PS10. the first were good, the latest not so much, apparently.

Any info welcomed.

just fitted new paras on my 109 ex miitary from jones springs,top quality british made from british steel guaranteed.was going to fit standard but a full seat of paras were cheaper than standard british steel made spring. full set of paras 215 plus vat where as the rears were 105 plus vat each. i was told by jones's that most cheaper leafs are either chinese pattern parts or produced from imported chinese steel producing some very quickley collasped springs.used jones's for years and i know they would not bullpoo for a sale.i know of at least one set of standards brought from good supplier lasting about 1 day.
yes they do lift landy about 2-2 1/2 inches,but the ride is like a coiler and with fantasic axle articulation.
only problem with mine being ex mod the extended shakles caused rear prop to catch chassis. solution easy put standard shakles on rear for about a fiver. plus a bit of weight in back now rides great.
i would recommend paras to anyone. it saves your spine. Laughing

I've got paras on my series SWB. I think it depends exactly what you expect them to do. They were originally designed for road use only (although they have come a long way in recent years) so won't be able to compete with traditional leaf springs off road.

I've got to say, I'm quite happy with mine. They give a much softer ride on the road and I'm no longer getting concussion on a daily basis due to the s**t roads in West Yorkshire. I can finally put aside my crash helmet Laughing However, if I was a series off roader, I wouldn't have had them fitted to be honest because I never could have afforded ones fit for purpose Embarassed
