Is there any reason you want to put in 98 springs?

Or you just need some new ones and have access to the 98 ones for the right price?

Time to get the tape measure out i think!

If you want to be 100% sure take out one of your existing springs and compare the two.

Measure your springs and the other and if they are the same lenght they should fit. Replace the u bolts when you do them

yes BUT he doesnt remember and has sold the car and bought a 200 series now

use a trolley jack and lift the vehicle up by the tow bar to let the springs go to full droop, then get the new spring and line it up with the old one and see if it is the same length.
