: Hi Ron,
: Sprites used 2 different but intercangable front springs. Earlier Sprites sat lower in the front. You may have the later springs, See following:-

:
: SPECIAL TUNING DATA
: Issued by: The BRITISH MOTOR CORPORATION LTD.
: SPECIAL TUNING DEPARTMENT, Abingdon, Berkshire, England
: Model sprite & MiDGST Sheet b - 6 issue 3


: Reference to the Mechanical Parts List AKD 3513 will show that two
: different front road springs have been fitted in production. Part No.
: 2A 4214 was fitted to earlier cars, but when AHA 8003 was fitted, this-
: raised the car, which may be useful on earlier cars being used for rally
: work. Obviously it is essential to use two of the same springs.

: Regards Keith

Thanks that mayhelp. The springs I ordered were [allegedly] for Mk1 Sprite. However I will dig further based on the info you provide. Ron Palgrave
