109 series one? that's an unusual beast.

Try http://www.chrisperfect.com - not the cheapest, but they know their
stuff.

CP has given it up now but the chap who's running it has all the info and
test gear and so forth.

On my 109" series III I have the 3-leaf rear springs - plenty for what I
want. You's not want 4-leaf unless you carry big weights.

significant improvement in ride compared to the standard springs that were
on it.

yup have to agree chris perfect springs are about the most expensive but
they seem to be very knowledgeable about the whole subject and can
supply the right spring for the job whatever type landy you have.
fitted a set to my s11 station wagon and the transformation sure brought
a smile to my face, not quite coilsprung but somewhere in between that
and original spec ones.
give them a try

merry christmas
