    What the difference between standard SRi springs?

    Have put my standard mk4 sri springs on ebay but have had a few people message asking wether they have JP or JY stamped on them. Mine are JP.

    How much are you looking for these?

    I have an SXi, and mine are JY... My garage told me I need some new ones as mine have both snapped ... I would definately be interested in buying these tho

    I think JP and JY are the same, JP on SRi's and JY on SXi's as they both come 20mm lower standard

    they will just be a reference to the model they originated on

    the only contributing factor is the axle weights of each car

    providing the axle weights of the car they are goin on match yours (or thereabouts) they will be fine

    axle weights can be found on the black VIN sticker inside the drivers door shut
    1-xxxx
    2-xxxx

    1 being front axle, 2 being rear

    All springs fit all models so theres no problems in that respect - its just what the springs are rated at officially....

    JP springs were fitted to 1.6 (16v) 1.8 & 2.2 coupe and hatch models with lowered suspension so you can rest assured they will fit

    I think that JP are the STANDARD Mk4 hatch springs and JY and the 20mm Mk4 lowered springs.

    I have discussed the same issue in a Mk4 related German forum and others say that too, so I think this is right.

    "JP = Serienfahrwerk -> Standard suspension
    JY = Sportfahrwerk -> Sport suspension"


    Mine are JP, but the car is not any lower comparing to other Mk4s.

    In addition to that, I ve seen the later hatch "sport edition" Mk4s and they have JY springs, and they do look lower than mine.
