Hi, Im seeking a pair of complete re-usable rear springs from a Series 1 Fulvia, to help keep my standard spec. S.1 1.3 Rallye on the road, or alternatively just one complete (however tired) one to serve as a template for getting a new pair made up.
I'm based in the north midlands, happy to pay a suitable sum for a suitable pair / template single, and within reason might travel afar to collect.  Also interested in acquiring spare rear spring shackles, fasteners, silent blocks etc.
Any prospective sellers are welcome to phone / leave a message for Steve on 01629 580972.

It may be cheaper to buy all from Cavalitto in Turin. He ships very quickly.

Its not the winning but taking part! or is it taking apart?

Thank you LL for your suggestion above, I may well do this.

However I've felt reluctant about 'buying new' having read of reproduction springs being much stronger / stiffer than originals, and noticed the following statement under a Buying Guide on Fulvia published in Classic Car Weekly of 16 Nov 2016:
" for sagging rear leaf springs and corrosion around around the mounting points. Replacement items aren't always that great with specialists reckoning that refurbishing and re-tempering originals is best".

I am wary of fitting any replacements that could lessen comfort / increase 'VNH'; my motoring seems to often involve journeying with non-enthusiast passengers over variable condition rural A and B roads, rather than speeding along the autostrada!
