Springs....depends what make/stiffness, not colour.

Power steering, adjust by removing or adding shims to the pulley. You remove one side of the pulley and remove/add shims as needed. If you remove shims from within the pully put them on the outside of the pulley for further use.

I have read before that people have had problems with the Jamex springs. These are red.
Mine are red, no idea what make but have had no problems at all. Been on 3 years now. Got them from Mike at www.c-m-c.org.uk all TUV approved.
Like Stridey has said, it's make not colour.

There are a few places that sell springs but try the following for a starter:
www.bluebird-type2.co.uk

No idea about you power steering but if you need a local garage recommendation (Bluntisham) send me a PM T:
