Question Re: The Best Springs for a Clio?

Hi. I realise this is a VERY old thread, but the same problem of weak coil springs still exists, and I was wondering if anyone had any experience to share or advice to offer?

My 52 plate (40K miles) has only ever failed 2 MOTs, but both times it was because of a failed rear coil spring. I'm getting the message that these are crap and need constant replacement. I can get an aftermarket for as little as 25 notes, but I can imagine it's just a length of spaghetti.

So, has anyone found decent spring upgrades yet without changing out the entire suspension system?
