    Hi there,

    My only experience with MAD springs was as a tugger, towing a Bailey Senator with a Granada Executive 2.5TD. I fitted the springs myself which did make the rear end of the car sit up a bit more prominently. The springs certainly made a huge difference to the feel of the car when towing, and if I was in need of them now, I wouldn't hesitate to fit them again.

    They were really easy to fit. I can't help with prices, as it was about six years ago plus, but much much cheaper than you have been quoted.

    HTH,

    Jock.

    Why not get Airide fitted instead? I had them fitted to my Fiat based Carioca 656 for the same reason. What a difference they made. Mine were fitted at a show by GB Services who are the dogs dodahs when it comes to Air Suspension. Well worth the money.
