Any input on these aftermarket springs?

They seem very cheap and some say its good quality.

I searched but not much info

Lesj÷fors is a Swedish brand but they also have production "elsewhere".
I've never heard anything negative regarding Lesj÷fors Springs here in Sweden.



Edit: Apparently they have been producing springs since 1852.

I bought a pair of these recently for the fronts in my e46 after I did my research.... Some are saying, "better than your weak coil springs" or "exceed the oem quality".

Did you retain your stock height? Are they any stiffer than stock?

Same height as stock. However, I still had the alignment done though... The stiffness are comparable with the stock or slightly better.. Time will tell though as mine lasted for 164K miles before replacement.

I got mine on Fleasbay for $100 shipped..

Did you replace your rear springs or your front?

The front are brand new and the rear were slightly used off a donor car with low mileage.

I also ordered these springs front and rear. Using these with Bilstein HD's on my 330xi. Lesjofors were OEM on the older Saabs (FYI before GM bought them out, Saab engineers were exceptionally picky about their cars and only used the best of everything). The OEM Lesjofors on my old Saab 900 turbo outlasted the car at 300k.
