The only thing I can suggest is swapping the rear springs left to right and seeing if that has any impact, some springs for the UK are 10mm shorter on the offside to allow for the camber on the roads. If yours are and you've fitted them on wrong sides, that would explain excessive lean, maybe...

If that doesn't work, fit a single spring seat on the low side. Superpro make them in 5mm 15mm 25mm and bigger.

I considered progressive springs and decided against them, I couldn't find any on the market at the time and would have had to have bespoke springs turned. An unknown, so I stayed with standard. They weren't expensive, around £200 for the set.

The main problem was the light weight of the body and the large axle weight, trying to stop rebound being the issue.

I'd love to know how you get on with both the leaning issue and also, how the springs behave in use, a small review would be great.

All 4 of mine have snapped since Christmas, needless to say I’m now not impressed with them either!

Replaced with jimnybits ones and all is well now.

Bad news Safari and yours Riccy, buying what you perceive to be "high quality" because of a suppliers name and cost, yet you get poor quality rubbish.

I've gone to Eibach but at only +30mm with 15mm spacers, just to stay with a "proper" spring manufacturer.

Some lifted cars that I've seen, have literally wobbled on their springs and look weak off road because of them, big swings as the point of balance changes over a crest. Never seen them take a car over but they make the car look far less stable to drive.

Nice to see a Jimny in competition.

Springs and Tyres, two of the most personal choices we make, after buying the car.
I sold my AVEO/Barina to buy the Jimny. www.aveoforum.com/forum/f118/av3o-wa-201...classic-sedan-17246/ The original Korean springs were soft and sagging after 1 month due to the poor quality spring steel. When I asked GM-Holden, they recommended Kings Springs (Gold Coast, Aust) and in 8 years of driving with Kings, perfect handling, a firm predictable ride and no drop! Its a long way from Aus to UK, but its worth the research if you are not finding good quality steel in Europe/UK. Don't shout me down, but 25-30mm lower, progressive rate springs, would suit my Jimny and driving style. kingsprings.com.au/product/progressive-rate

Edit: After re-reading this post and King Springs web page, I am close to picking up the phone and asking the price! :) I did!

I made the call/email to King Springs! Their reply said, for the 2019 Suzuki Jimny, not available yet. They will let me know as soon as something is available.
