When I measured my original springs they were exactly as the Haynes Midget service manual listed the Mk1 sprite should be. That is 9.4inch free length. They had been off the car for about 10 years so had had lots of time to get back to their original length.
The Later (Mk111 sprite) is listed as 9.59inch and the 1500cc sprite 9.85inch.
I was not able to confirm spring rate but it is said to be 271lbf/in for all 3.

: In re-building my basket case Turner, I suspected that the front coils springs were too long or stiff and not even original.[Car sits too high at front] So I bought a set of new Sprite Mk1 springs but find them to give the same problem.
: Can anyone give me a reference point from their car; spring free length, spring coil diameter and number of coils.
