    I know this has been done before, but can’t seem to find the right info. Would anyone happen to know the code or colour code for TD5 110 SW front springs, normal duty. Thanks!

    Cheers, do you know if they were fitted to the td5s? I know they’re suitable up to 2007, but can’t seem to find if they were actually standard, I.e not from 200/300tdi era. Basically, I’m after the more progressive spring rate that the td5 SW had.

    Cheers Mick, I recall seeing that chart on here it that long ago. Seems to suggest that RHD models are not handed and two x NRC8045 will do? Seems strange that ‘07 models I.e Pumas can use the same spring both sides, but previous models needed NRC8044 + NRc8045. Wonder why this is?

    It was something to do with weight distribution. One is slightly longer than the other. I fitted two of the longer ones when I done my rebuild, 8044 seems to ring a bell.
