After buying a new rear tail light and some tyres, it appears I'm another victim of broken springs. Car failed MOT on a front left broken spring.

I know there have been topics of this before, and after asking around garages here, I can see my options are similar.

*Pay alot of money from a main dealer
*buy aftermarket ones which lower the car
*maybe buy a spare one off ebay
*or try the bravo springs

I have read that people on here have tried the bravo springs and they fit. Can I ask, how many of the people here have a 1.4 petrol and have tried the bravo 1.4 springs?
Do we know for sure that they fit.?

Thank you for your reply.

Because of time contraints, I couldn't wait for orders off the Internet. I managed to get a fiat bravo strut with damper and spring on it for £30 from traynors. Everything was the exact same as the chrysler delta.

I heard back from a garage today, who was waiting on a main dealer to reply. They would only sell the springs in a pair. £500.
I'm guessing that main dealer is chrysler Charles Hurst, here in N. Ireland.

£500 that is a scandalous.

I'm so thankful for the support and experience on this forum.

Wowsers that is ridiculus! I can't quit remember the exact amount mine Bravo ones were, but from memory i'm pretty sure they were around £35 each?

 

You should ALWAYS replace both springs on the same axis, so just be careful only doing one...

The last generation of Bravo, so think from 2007 onwards...

Well, 13k and nearly 13 months in, my NSF spring went bang. Luckily just the tail at the bottom so I was able to limp home. Would I be correct in thinking the KYB springs Gafis mentions would be correct on my 1.6 Multijet SR?

I'm pretty sure they'll be fine. I bought Bravo 2 springs for mine and they were identical.

My local garage are great but they hit a "computer says no" wall with their usual parts factor as they will only work on the registration number and couldn't see anything listed for Chrysler Delta. Refused to order off a make and model.

I had that exact issue. Just go onto Autotrader and find a Bravo, then use that registration number!

 

If they still say no, just find a different parts factor.

In the end we ordered using the KYB part number. They fitted no problem but are a little "fatter" than the ones that came off. The car is sitting quite a bit higher, but I'm sure it will settle with time. In fact, I actually wouldn't mind a little more ground clearance.

Anyone ever heard of Simoni Springs? Seems you can buy a full set of lowered springs for the Delta as cheap as a pair of OE normal ones.........

Italian company from Northern Italy... Been around for quite a while and do pretty much every aftermarket product going! I've not bought anything from them, so can't comment on quality. Although a quick chat with the guys at Demon Tweeks should tell you what you need to know as they stock some of their products.
