Can anyone recommend a particular supplier (e.g. website, ebay id etc)?

Hi, I agree that genuine Renault parts are sub standard as all my suspension springs have snapped and had to be replaced, one snapped twice, I fitted after market springs and touch wood all seems fine, my bushes and my springs came from a local company based in Stoke on Trent, and they all seem good quality, I also had a steering rack from them as mine failed about a year ago, and it's still going strong, also changing the bushes sharpens up the steering as I had issues with my tyres wearing on the outer edge and hopping on the road on full lock, this has more or less been cured, so is definatly worth doing, but not with Renault parts!!!
