Re: Rear springs

Strange how these comments appear in an odd order?   

I've been told my springs (all round) are pretty rusted up.  Also told, no need to change unless they break!  But am having some work done and considering other work while there.  But working on cars is like going to the dentist.  The more you look, the more you find to do.

Re: Rear springs

From the guide, they are standard duty, but higher lift (2850mm compared to 2400mm).  Suit Rear on 460, 461, 463.

Not sure what my current ones are, but don't think I want more clearance.

Re: Rear springs

I bought these for my 1988 SWB 460. However, they do not fit. These are of a smaller diameter top and bottom than in the middle. My current vehicle rear springs are the same diameter all the way top to bottom. It is not clear cut - at least to me! The best way, I suggest, is to note the dimensions of the springs currently on your vehicle and see whether these tally.

Re: Rear springs

All rear springs I have fftted, are same diameter , though they don' t half compress so possibly the Monroe springs are meant to be like that? Are they same diameter , top to bottom as in thickness of the metal? Originals and some copies are progresive,  as in thicker wire in the midde.

Re: Rear springs

Yes. The "wire" appears to be of a consistent thickness. It is the external diameter of the spring itself that varies: smaller at top and bottom than in the middle. I believe (?) the 460 did have two dimensions of spring and think that these ones might suit a pre 1988 model. As I say, the safest way would be to measure what is currently on the vehicle. N.

Re: Rear springs

P.S. The springs I have in error are 410mm from top to bottom. Hope this helps the pondering... Nick.

Re: Rear springs

Def rear, would be Heavy Duty on a swb? Free length measurement might help some one

Help out a chap who has had Gs for nearly 30 years but never replaced any suspension parts!   What G would these suit... I am thinking 89 W460  ?    Front?
