Rear helper springs

Post by apblake »

I’m looking for a pair of rear helper spring for my late mk1 Cooper S on hydro - so I need the stronger springs. Looking for a pair of springs in new condition. I tried Minimail but it is going on two weeks now without a response after two message attempts.
Thanks,
Adam

Adam, try contacting Tim through the forum - it could be the same issue you had getting hold of me

You could also try Nick Rogers, he's on a couple of forums. He restores quite a lot of 60's parts for sale.
