    Hi

    Can anyone tell me what sort of coils I need to get for a VW Gatcombe? And where in Cheshire I might get hold of one? Someone's fitted the wrong sort on the rear!

    Thanks for your help!

    You could try a VW dealer or motor factor, they are T4 common parts. Failing that there are specialist suspension suppliers.

    there are alot of vans out there with shorter lowered springs . why not track back previous owners they may have the original springs somewhere.
    thats of course if lowering as taken place.
