Just sold a set of springs with pink spots....posted couple of days ago. Only thing I can suggest is that you pm him as he was talking about just replacing a pair, but cant remember if it was front or rear. (I sent him the full set)

Drop him a pm mate. prt225TT

Hiya,
This maybe a long shot, but I have a set of springs off my 2004 TTR that have 3 silver grey dots on the rears. Had to ask the missus as I am a tad colour blind. :oops:
If they are any good to you then they are yours FOC.

I have pink dots on mine, in fact I was looking at them yesterday as one side seems higher than the other! So on one side there is more space between the wheel and the arch than the other.

Anyone know what this would mean? Higher one a newer replacement spring?

you need to check carefully by jacking up car and removing the wheel tha sits lower ,check the spring for breakage , it should'nt be too hard to spot

This is what I was thinking however they all seem to sit at the same hight bar the drivers side rear which seems higher!? Really strange.

check to see if they all have the same number and colour of dots , It may be that one might have been replaced before you owned the car
