Can you tell which ones and what springs were used? Thinking when my nivomats give up I will consider changing to them?

Only that they are B6 or B8 from the colour. Springs I recon are o.e. TBH. and feel a bit soft to me as I think without the nivomats boosting the spring rate up & it looks a bit lower at rear even stood still. :park:

Just found this online.
