    Would think Paddocks or any of the usual stockists.

    I would be very wary of HD springs unless you plan on being heavily loaded almost all the time. They make the vehicle very uncomfortable to ride in.

    Fair enough. Many assume that HD means better, and end up regretting it.

    Paddock would be my first port of call. Have a look on their website, and if you don't see them, give them a ring and ask what they suggest.
    Britpart springs are usually good.
