leaf springs

Anyone know where theres a set of leaf springs for
a panda/marbella 4x2 (single leaf) or is it possible to use a 4x4 spring stripped down to one leaf

Next question if i use the head of a 4x4 engine 903cc same as mine what do i gain ?
and what does the extra bhp give me and what will it cost me ie,in petrol consumption?

Re: leaf springs

Hi Mrf 94,

Please could you tell me the name and location of the scrappy in Huddersfield with the Siseley ?
I don't know if Kevin at the Hebden Bridge scrapyard has crushed my Marbella yet. I'll call in on Sunday, as I'll be pasing, and see.
