I got mine from British Springs and I'm well pleased with them. They were by no means the most expensive or I would imagine the best quality but they get the job done.

British springs = good + procomp gas shocks even better,
On other springs, be careful we fitted brand new springs to a memebrs LWB lowerd the jacks and it when lower than it was onthe old spings Crying or Very sad
