[Steering & Suspension] low ground clearance
#1
I have a 2007 berlingo multispace desire, It never has any grounding scrapes with sleeping policemen and other road safety humps, but yesterday I was again over the western lake district, hardknott and wrynose passes and it had a few scrapes on the road surface, which is like the surface of the moon with its uneveness. My springs must be tired, would new springs raise the front end by much?, and how much of a job is it to change them.

springs may also be broken, not just tired. will new springs raise front end much, it depends on that how low it's now. if old springs are tired new springs will also stiffen front suspension.
i changed my springs a month ago. it was about one hour job per side. hardest part is to compress new springs. you will need a coil spring clamps to safely compress springs.
