    Isn't the ecoflex also lowered a bit compared to normal versions?

    Check out the number of different springs here. There are 5 main categories (standard, lower sport 1, lower sport 2, ecoflex and bad road package), each having also different types (automatic/manual/4WD, flexride). Good luck finding the correct one!
    There are websites that takes your VIN and display all the options used on your car, also displaying which chassis is used.

    Also why it's recommended to replace springs in pairs on the same axle, never just one at a time!
