Abarth Springs - Shared Fitment

Just phoned local parts companys regarding replacement front springs for my 02 Abarth.

None of them seem to reconise this model or there computer indicates no parts are available of this type.

Are they the same as the 1.9 JTD?

When searching for replacement springs online, it stated 1.9jtd/2.4

Just wondered if anyone has any info regarding this

Cheers Danny

Not that simple YP, there was a change around 04 which means two different types of Eibach's for Abarths/JTD's. Both Koa & I sent sets back as they were different to those needed. If the OP does a search on lowering he/she will see what I mean.

Another reason for a sticky/sub section perchance?

Re: Springs?

These aren't Eibachs, but straight OEM replacements as I said before...

Danny, to answer your question, the Abarth shares it's springs with all 2.4 Models and the 150bhp JTD.

DO NOT be fooled into getting normal JTD springs, as these won't fit - Abarth's and 150MJet's have a 35mm wide hub fixing, all others have 25mm.

That's news to me

I've got a set of Abarth springs and they look identical to my old JTD springs.

Most after-market suppliers seem to equate Abarth = JTD (aside from the points made by Bozzy)
