Default spring options, mk2 escort???

evening all
I read somewhere that mk2 escort springs fit the rear of the s12?
ive had a few escorts in my time,and im sure I can find a set of rears here somewhere,
but, has this been done?
and is it true escort front legs also fit?

Mk2 escort rear are leaf sprung live axles.
All UK S12's are IRS.
So no that wont work.

Do you want replacement springs or lowered ones?

Fronts are easy to modify, rear is a little tricky, but by no means impossible.
