    Happened to me not so long ago, had wheel off, couldn't see any signs of snapped spring, ride hasn't changed (though was bad before hand).

    Does sound like it mate, hard to check without getting her jacked up, nip to your local garage mate to get them to check.

    Not had a bang, but had the suspension off today and i was missing the bottom couple of inch from a front spring... handling and ride height same, only realised because they where off... yours could be similar
