    Need advice bout rear springs?

    hi people i have an 02 plate astra 1.8sxi and one of my rear springs have snapped, I have been ringing round bout a new set for it and have been advised that there is 2 different sets for these.( a normal set and an heavey duty set). with me towing a caravan i have been told that i need the heavy duty set cos they have a better load bearing but someone else told me that they dont have a better load bearing and they are just slightly a better make so they said it is pointless spending that bit extra and i might as well just buy the normal set, Wot would you lot advise, cheers

    Lowering + caravan towing might not be the best idea though...usually I'd say the same mind.
