Thanks for that. Just added it to my watch list ready for my next ebay purchase. My van is a 55 plate 104 panel van, I think the ones I need are the same as yours? Did you only pay the 6.90 euro shipping?

Hi there just came across your post guys... great bargain...

I have a T5 1.9 TDI T30 panel van, 104bhp, 2006, Revenue Weight 2960kg. Are these details the same as yours?

Is the link you posted for the springs the link i need to purchase? Sorry i'm a bit dazed by the German text!

Cheers DWDS!

Hi, not sure about revenue weight??? my van is a T30, 1.9, 04 plate. Front axel 1500kg rear 1625kg. The link I posted is buy the springs I need, I used Google Translate to help and also if you buy from ebay.co.uk and paypal it all looks the same, this helped me. I saved £105:D Also I needed to add a postage fee for the UK, I can't speak German but I know you need to add 11,90 euros. Paid by paypal total bill 179euros =£155. T:
Hope this helps

I brought mine from germany £146,just makes you wonder how much the UK importer is making on these springs
its a shame a UK H&R dealer can't cut them out of the deal and go straight to H&R and sell them at the same price.
i'm fitting some for a mate and i'm going to photo it all and i'll post it to help if anyones thinking about fitting them,
i'm only a carpenter and it was simple to do.

Been looking at these but can't find a local garage that will fit these for under £200.Anyone had springs fitted in south wales for a good price?

The rears are super easy to fit yourself you just need some fat bloke to push down on the rear arm after you have removed the shock bolt and they just pull out then pop the new ones in. Not done the fronts yet as they look a pain.

we're sorry buddy but we can only do what we can!!, I have had to get the new rep from H&R UK to pop in and see me to sort this out, and he assures me that the UK H&R will not handle any warrenty claim's on kits purchased overseas so I recon £15 is a little price to pay for the use of a 2 yr warrenty. our UK stock should hopefully be here next week so delivery would be 24hrs too
