    V70r springs

    Looks very much like the sonic's front springs have sagged. Is this something that is common?

    It's off the road whilst I do the manual conversion and some maintenance, so may as well address everything at once.

    I noticed a HUGE difference replacing my springs with new OEM, and this was a week or two after fitting new Munroe C4 shocks all round

    I think I'll stick a pair of new ones on the front, shocks aren't too old.
