Hi All,

Hope someone can help me with this as I have spent several hours searching the net to no avail.

I have been cleaning out my (recently deceased) grandfather's garage and have come across a pair of springs. I assume they are front springs. Please correct me if I am wrong.

They are labeled Tickford 8402-5534-AA and in a smaller font S25433.

Does anyone have any idea what they may fit? I'm wanting to sell them, along with a few other ford parts grandad had kicking about, to raise some cash for my Nana.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

The Basic number is that of Rear springs but, that doesn't matter much. They look like they are progressive rate Front springs and would be more than likely be AU. It's a pity Tickford is no longer in existence.

Unusual to see a blue stripe instead of a red one.

Ford coil springs had all sorts of colours on them, some white, some red, some yellow, some blue and green and some with 2 colours. :)

are those the ones that are soft on small bumps but tight on big bumps and tight corners, miss those ones they made for perfect driving in race and street applications
