My 1969 Spider 1750 has the original springs. They are covered in surface rust, but seem sturdy. Is there any reason to think that they need to be changed? Neither the front, nor the rear seems to be sagging. Could I expect a significant change in handling if I were to replace them, or should I just focus on replacing all the (original) suspension bushings first? I’ve done most in the rear and now have to do those in the front. The car seems to oversteer at speed in some corners.
Do the bushes anyway, I changed the rears because it used to bottom out (fully loaded), all good now, fronts still seem in good condition and nice and compliant, changing springs won't change handling much, new bushes etc will make a significant difference if they are original
