    Default Another broken spring! AARRRGGGHH!

    Yes. Another broken spring. Front one this time.



    I was having the LPG system serviced today and one of the lads noticed it while it was on the ramp.

    Another job to do before the MOT next month!

    an eibach pro kit set of springs lowers your car 30mm, which is fine with standard shocks..
