This is total madness...RenParts quote me yesterday 526quid for the OEM springs...Astonishing..I don't understand what's so special with OEM springs..Probably the Renault badge..also the info from the authorised workshop i am dealing with, in Greece is that they are rare that's why the OEM are so expensive.
I made my mind up and i will go with the Eibach Pro Kits and OEM shocks.
Questions here are two..
1. How much lowering the rideheight the Eibach Pro kit..15mm or 30mm
2. What about top mounts?

Yes, once the oem parts start to run out then The price rockets. The most ridiculous is the boot has struts for a V6/trophy.. they are into the hundreds from Renault or £20 if you buy from a company that make them separately.

Eibach pro kit lower a non cup to around the same as a cup or just a little lower if rember correctly

By oem I mean Renault.
Thanks mate!
You helped me a lot.
I am gonna order the Eibachs from KTec probably, since i am already a customer (i have hooked up a decat exhaust system from them)
and combine them with OEM shocks (also new).
They sell the Eibach pro kit for 176pounds all 4.
What top mounts do you use?
OEM?

bushes wise. Dog bone is an easy mod.. real world benefits.. who knows. you really have to do all the engine mounts.

whishobones I just bought brand new Renault ones. not silly prices yet. come with new bushes and ball joints inc.

not had experience of changing any of the others. folk tned to swap the rear shock top mounts more sue to them falling to bits than tightening things up. again they come incuded on rears shocks if you buy new ones.
