Best Replacement BN1 Leaf Springs

Crowbar

Hello all, Merry Christmas!

Any opinions on the best manufacturer of rear leaf springs for the BN1? I don't mind paying a premium for a quality product that looks as close to OEM as possible

My car is running on the original 1954 leafs, and not surprisingly has developed a sag toward the drivers side on the left.

Many thanks in advance.

Springs seem to be a bit of a crapshoot with folks' experiences all over the map.
Suggest you buy from a US supplier as they're too expensive to return to the UK if you're not satisfied.
There are previous threads discussing springs - recurving vs buying new.

Suggest either British Car Specialists or Healey Surgeons.

I have the Denis Welch springs with the extra leaf.
Perhaps I was fortunate and in any case they were fine right out of the box.

In the U.K. There are specialist firms who'll recondition and reset the originals and even rebush them if needed and if we have them, I'm sure you lot do and far more and better of them at that. They'll make new worn of broken leaves too.

Any recommendation for UK suppliers? I'd rather recondition the originals if possible.

Thanks,
