What other springs fit?

Other than the usual suspects, does anyone have any cross reference to other coil springs that fit the rover perches? Like do Chevy or Ford coils from passenger cars or trucks work too? Just wunnerin.

there are so many options available for OEM and aftermarket to suit just about any application. I have no idea why one would begin to venture into that realm. There is so much that goes into a spring I can't imagine that whatever you find is going to be some magic bullet. better to spend that time and energy on some other aspect of your project

Plus new springs are stupidly cheap. In the UK, no more than $20 each. Used ones free.
