Hope this helps someone.
The RF coil spring broke on my 2002 Special.

Found a pair of Swedish-made coils listed specifically for the Special at Rock Auto.

Installed them with new mounts and bearings. The KYB strut inserts had only 5K on them and were reinstalled.

Ride height increased slightly. While the free, unloaded length of the new springs measured slightly shorter than the original springs, they actually added about 10-13mm of gap between the top of the tires and the wheel openings.

Ride quality improved, however. Noticeably. It is handling our local pot hole patches way better than it did before.

Report back after about a month of driving what the final ride height is, new springs usually take a month to settle. 10-13mm is right about 0.5", which is the factory difference between Special and other springs.
