Saw these on the 'bay. Eibach, so they should be alright. Apparently about 30mm lower than standard.

Eibach are normally the best performance spring. Can anyone with a Multiair confirm the Bravo spring part number if used?

After replacing the front left with a reconditioned suspension strut from a fiat bravo, I went back to the same place and got a front right one. This was all before xmas, but I'm only getting the chance now to put it on.

I've found it is not always the case they are the same. They look identical, but one is a different size fitting.
I have a picture in the link showing this difference.

I hope the link is allowed

Something to be cautious of when getting fiat bravo suspension.

Hello guys,I have a Chrysler delta 1.6 Diesel multijet 120hp/88kw and I need to replace my front springs.
Reading some previous posts I can see I am not the only one struggling to find them.
Am I correct in saying I can buy the Fiat bravo ones as they fit 100% ok?
I have read this should fit ok:

https://m.autodoc.co.uk/kyb/7058056
Any opinion?
Can anyone confirm or suggest any other link where I can buy them?
Thank you

Bravo ones do fit. IIRC the part numbers for the KYB springs for Bravo are in this thread. What I would say is, depending on spec, your car may sit slightly higher. I have them on my 1.6 Multijet SR and that has been the case. However, it's only been a few weeks, so they may settle down with time.

New versus old, they will settle

On the old springs, speed humps needed to be approached with extreme caution and the front overhang was a bit of a problem on uneven ground, so I'm guessing they had settled a lot. Hoping the KYBs wont settle as much as the originals did.

Last time my car was in my mechanic said one of my fronts was cracked at the top so would fail the next MoT. I told them Bravo Springs were the same but they report otherwise in not all models. After having a look around I appear to be able to buy a complete set of dedicated lowered springs for the car for not much more than a single OE one so reckon I might go for that.......... Will let you know.

Hi James. the wider one is from a 1.9/2.0 car (and 1750TB abroad) the 1.6 and 1.4 turbo use the narrower strut. Not many 1.9/2.0 versions of either car over here.

It would be good to know what the correct ride height actually is. The handbook doesn't give it. I'm guessing that the S and SE are different to SR and Limited.

I've done a bit of research on KYB springs and there are several spring types. Firstly, nothing mentioned for Lancia Delta of our vintage, so over to the Bravo section, and there are two types of rear spring (sport and regular) and five fronts (sport regular plus varying engine weights to support)

 

 

1.4 base          Front      RH3906     Rear      RH6389

1.4 T-Jet                        RH3907                   RH6389    

1.4 T-Jet Sport              RH3910                   RH6437

1.6 Diesel                      RH3908                   RH6389

2.0 Diesel                      RH3909                   RH6437

 

 

Dampers are more straightforward and are in the Lancia section

 

Rears  all models                                            343826

Fronts  2.0 (1.9 twin turbo and 1750TB)         339786    

            all 1.4 petrols and 1.6 diesels             339785

 

Spring prices on ebay start at £15 for the rears and £25 for the fronts

 

HTH

That's a big help. I have the KYB RH3908 on mine, I still think it looks too high at the front, but as it's a working car, I needed it sorted asap. I may look at changing them, depending on what else my MOT throws up next month. 

 

I have the found Eibach part numbers, which Autodoc list under Lancia Delta III as being for models with "sports suspension" 

 

1.4 Petrol Front: 113001201VA

1.4 Petrol Rear:  113001201HA

 

1.6, 1.9, 2.0 Diesel Front: 113001202VA

1.6, 1.9, 2.0 Diesel Rear:  113001201HA

 

Complete kit of lowering springs (30mm drop front and rear on standard car, but with the caveat that models with factory sports suspension may already be lowered to some degree)

 

1.6, 1.9, 2.0 Diesel: E10-49-002-02-22

 

1.8 Petrol: E10-49-002-02-22

Would a passenger door lock assembly from a fiat bravo fit a chrysler delta 2012?
