8.32 - new springs?

Berichtdoor Allan832 » 04 Mar 2018, 17:32

Does anyone know where to find new springs for the 8.32? Front 82476365 (same as diesel, from what I have found), rear 82427963.

You can't really find them anymore. And nothing else except the original shocks (original dimensions) and springs work on a 8.32 in my opinion.

Yes, I have been looking for a while. However, I found front springs for my 164 Q4 and the same place also has for front ones for the Thema, so I ordered both.

The dimensions for the Thema springs are actually the same, see photo, but there is one winding less...! I am still going for these, as they are not 30 years old, and hopefully that will work fine. The number is Suplex 15034.

As far as i know the original front springs of an 8.32 has windings that are 1 or 2mm thicker. It's like the normal thema springs are 12mm and from 8.32 they are 14mm, other than that they should look identical. For the shocks on the front you can use normal Thema replacements.
The rear is more complicated, the 8.32 springs are longer and thicker...and the lower spring seat on the strut is positioned at a different position. In the end a huge headache if you have to replace all of it.

The dimensions are the same (also the thickness of 13,5mm), which is why I think these are ok, even with 1 winding less.

I will reuse original rear springs, as I did not find replacements for these.

I have reconditioned shocks to be used for this.
