182 cup pack spring options, shocks and top mounts ?

Hi everyone,

a very long time since i have asked a question on here…

my 182 has standard cup pack suspension and a front spring has snapped. I have found out they are no longer available from Renault so want to know what is the best replacement that keeps it standard. Im not looking for a lowering spring or to change to coilovers. I will be buying new cup pack shocks for whatever springs i end up getting. From what i have read, eibach prolines seem to be a preferred option?

Also interested in what else i will need as i want to replace it all. Top mounts? I remember reading issues about newer versions not fitting properly. Is this still an issue and if so what is the way of solving it?

thanks for any advice
Austin

Eibach Pro Line springs will be what you need.

They're the only ones I'm aware of that don't lower the car noticeably over stock springs.

Edit - Febi top mounts fit without knocking.

I know you said you don't want to lower it but I had this problem when I MOTd it 2 weeks ago. Mine was still on genuine cup springs
I went for Grams springs. It does lower it slightly, maybe about 20 mm but I can honestly say it feels much more planted now. I wish I'd got Grams springs earlier. They were only 130 quid delivered 😊

do you have any pics? I feel like i have seen some and they look really low? I have done just 300 miles over the last year it only moves every week or so to keep everything running right.

thanks Daz. Do you happen to know the part number for the febi mounts?

Proline springs on Autodoc seems considerably cheaper than everywhere else. Anyone any experience with them? Not sure why the price is so different

Special deals for big German companies buying directly from Eibach Germany that other companies are not allowed to get. It means also any warranty issues are with Germany and cannot be processed in the UK.

Bought from Autodoc many times, albeit not in the past few months when we've been having this logistics crisis. They are based in Germany as are Eibach which probably contributes to the keen pricing.

I think it looks spot on now. Like I said. The drop is only very subtle, about 20mm at most and it's handles so much better.
I ordered on Monday afternoon and they came Tuesday morning. I can't recommend them and Kam racing highly enough 😊

You wont go wrong with the Eibach Proline springs, better quality than Renault, ride will be as good or better and will settle after time and look just right, I'm glad I changed over from OEM springs which in my case kept breaking.
I paid £120 five years ago for front and back set, those came direct from Germany - best price at the time.

will be putting new dampers on too so should feel brilliant as current ones are the 16 year old originals! £107 seems a bargain then if that was 5 years ago.

If they're shipped from Germany - I hope you don't get stuffed with VAT or import duties, not sure of the rules ATM. Be interested to know when you get them.

Will be no issues with that mate had an order from Germany last week. No issues other than takes a bit longer to arrive. Will keep you updated.

I've ordered the prolines too, being delivered tomorrow....going to get the cup shocks also....what top mounts you going for?
Im going to get febi as everything i read seems to indicate they are the best fit, like the originals before they changed the design. I will be putting it all together with new cup shocks too.

where are you getting the shocks from? Cheapest i have found is £125 on eBay. Closest to that is £140 on rpd.

I'm going through Kamracing....£205 for both rear and fronts....where are you getting the Febi mounts, I've been looking but if you have a link it would be much appreciated?

Quick question, what's the issue with the OEM top mounts? I've got some new shocks and springs waiting to be fitted and I just bought the OEM mounts, is my day going to be ruined when I try to fit them?

They were out of stock at Renault. We've just taken a delivery of the OEM top mounts so they are back up on the shop.
I thought people were having problems with the new style renault top mount where they dont fit properly leaving a gap? My understanding is the febi are the same design as the original renault mount from new.

I know people have got a gap when the car is in certain steering position but I'm not sure its ever been an actual problem when the car is in use.
