    Default Front spring failure - 54 plate Sri

    So I see, it's a common fault. Anyone know if this is just a dealer part? I only picked the car up tuesday from a independent dealer. I would of thought it would have been picked up on the MOT, but at the same time, to be fair, it's broken right at the bottom where it sits in the cup and has like a plastic sheath around the last 3 - 4" of the coil. What sort of price are they? Phoned the dealer and he said no probs in getting it done, but don't know if I'm being unreasonable in asking him to pay for it at a garage local to me (got the car form Leicester)

    First off it should have been picked up on the MOT. Second, really should be replaced as pairs otherwise you could end up a lop sided car. Your best bet would be to get a set of Eibach springs for the complete car (about £130) which are infinitaly better than the VX ones and also lower your car 30mm

    The VX spring is nearly that cost for one!

    Talk nicely to you dealer and see if he will fit the Eibachs for free if you supply them. The rears are easy to do yourself, front ones are need a spring compressor and a few other tools.
