I am in the process of refurbing a PL12 MK1 but I am having problems with the suspension springs.I took the original springs off for cleaning as they were badly corroded and mixed them up not realising they went in a certain order,However I ordered some replacements off ebay which look in great condition. The guy has colour coded and drew a diagram as to which springs go where(he sent me 2 sets) but when I have put them on, the chassis is lobsided and doesn't sit right,I have emailed the guy and he said the turntables he took the springs off were the same,I suspect some of the springs maybe worn.
I have messed about with swapping the springs about and filled them with car cleaning sponge and it's now only a couple of mm lower at the back.
so I am wondering will the difference in height between the front and the back make any difference or do any harm also has anybody used anything else other than springs for suspension.
Thanks in advance for any help
