Default GRAYSTON springs...

Just interested to hear any comments, adverse or otherwise, from anyone who has used or had fitted Grayston spring assisters - the coils that fit 'cart'springs, not the rubber spacers for coillsprings.

(We've got a set on the MH and they've transformed the handling, comfort, ride et al. Also the rubber thingies on the rear of the V40 which have helped load-carrying in what is a low-slung car)

They were already fitted to my 'van when I bought it 9 years ago. The 'van is 18 years old this year. Last year one of the springs broke and a pair of new Grayston springs and carriers were fitted.
The new springs have completely transformed the straight-line stability and there is no wallowing at all whilst cornering.

From my experience, I would recommend them to anyone looking for a relatively cheap (compared to the air powered versions) solution to saggy-bottom syndrome.

Yep, by far the cheapest option - and very little to go wrong!
