    So it seems either a good fitting spring that does not last or a poorly fitting one that lasts
    Not sure what make to go for now

    Suplex. Ensure you order right type for your Smart. There are 3 different front springs for the 450. (Brabus, ESP and non ESP). Although mine is non ESP, I fitted The longer ESP springs on the front and standard Roadster springs on rear. End result more comfort. Standard 451 front springs also fit a 450.

    ESP was introduced on the 698cc engine models in 2003 onwards ?

    Easy confirmation is whether you have almond shaped headlights or peanut (double elipse) shaped

    All 450 Smarts having ZEE instead of SAM are non ESP as is mine. Mine has peanut headlamps but is not ESP.

    Finally had time and no rain to take a quick test run and the good news is that there are not any noises coming from the replaced spring so hopefully it looks worse than it is.
    The broken spring has RH2951 on it which is a KYB spring .
    Thanks for all the help
