Broken rear strut spring

Having tyres changed the other day I noticed that the offside rear strut spring on my 1.9 Ti Sportwagon has snapped at the base. In haven't noticed any problems with suspension since I acquired the vehicle in November last year so it must have been like that before.

Having scoured all advertised sources for a Ti spring (except for AF dealers to date), does anyone know if they are available only in the Land of Rocking Horse? Everybody can sell you standard rear springs and dampers but obviously Ti spec will ride lower.

Hi there,
I have a full set of 159 2.4ti SW springs recently taken off my car (at c22k miles) after replacing with the Brera S suspension kit. I'm thinking of putting these on e-bay at some time along with the shocks + 19" Ti silver spoked wheels. Suspect the 1.9Ti springs/spring rate could well be different, at least the fronts, but I'd be happy selling mine on if of interest.
