when i had the spax springs on when it was a c20xe the rear springs looked as though they were coil bound ,the mot'er said that they were knackered even though the springs were a month old i think it is down to the technitions knowledge , as a lot of lowered springs are progresive rate and they dont realise that some do look as though they are coil bound, so they either fail or give an advisory when there is nothing wrong
