Ha! I ended up finding a Russian-language site that listed the part number as ScanTech.

Can the “Made in Sweden” label even be true?

Scan tech was an aftermarket Swedish parts maker who were located in Sweden, but I think they folded or were bought/acquired by the Koch Brothers

Al least with Springs on a P80 labor is a snap, and its pretty easy to tell if they go...snap, too. I don't think they have a horrible reputation on the springs but might be worth a search here.

A nice idea in principle but I have to park in a very tight multistorey car park every day. Perhaps I need to find an acquaintance with 55s and give it a go.
