Hi I changed the front springs because one of them snapped, but it looks a lot higher than it did before I changed them.

If anyone with a mk2 focus 2 L diesel can measure the distance between the rim and top of the arch so I can compare.

I have attached a photo

Thanks

Stu

Thanks I got them from euro parts with the reg number so they should be right I checked the length of them before I put them in and they were the same size. Thanks for putting my mind at rest

The newer spring will sit high as the old one will be compressed, when I replaced them on my fiesta the new springs were 3 inches taller than the old compressed one! (Partly why you replace both at the same time) the car will settle slowly over time.
