    I bet a full Brabus spring set from Smart will be cheaper than a set of Eibach springs.

      Okay, I'll contact the Smart dealer then.

          Smart Stuff sell the Brabus springs for £227.25: https://www.smart-stuff.parts/452-ro...-roadster-7518

          A set of Brabus pattern springs made by Suplex can be sourced for £61.04 plus postage.

            Buying a set Brabus springs at the Smart dealer will cost me £262. Expensive, but I guess the quality will be satisfactory.

But maybe we been lucky, it seems like it is a common failure, reading the url.


                  Does anyone know which manufactures the springs for Smart? Is the standard and Brabus springs from the same manufacturer?

                    Maybe you were lucky or maybe at some point smart changed spring suppliers or the manufacturing method. Who knows?! And that's kind of my point. I don't think spring life or quality is an easy thing to predict. Were it not for your desire to lower your car, I'd say just stick with what you have - on the 'if it aint broke - basis.

                    Given the springs you have (both sets) have, as best as I remember, free tangs - have you considered just cutting them. Lowered and stiffened with one easy angle grinder cut.

                      Only rear springs can be cut.
