The springs I have on the front at the moment are 1.9" ID and 6" tall so it looks as if there were some suspension changes from the Deon to the Classic replicas car.

May be a deon code but wondered if the number may refer to spring rate. Strange the front is a higher number? But add's up to the discussion in the club mag. Maybe deon got them the wrong way round on the parts list? Possibly should be 450lbs rear 300lbs front??
I've measured the rear springs and they are identical in size to the front ones.
My corner weight measurements show that the rear of the car is heavier than the front which would suggest that I need the greater poundage springs on the rear.

Many thanks for all your help Ian
