    Default Flipping springs

    Got in my car to go home from work this afternnon didnt notice anything unusual, Pulled forward and could hear a loud grinding noise thought something was caught under car got out to have a look, Thats when i noticed my front passenger side wheel was right under the arch and the grinding noise was the wheel scrubbing the arch liner
    So phoned AA who came out and confirmed broken spring it had actually broken and come off the base of the shocker they recovered me and took me the 35 mile journey home down the M54 back to Shrewsbury
    I dismantled the shocker this evening and will pick a new spring up in morning, But this quite shocked me i didnt feel the spring go when i parked up at work this morning but what could have happened if it had gone like that on the motorway on the way to work ? i drive 70 mile a day from my home in Shrewsbury to my work in Walsall
    or worse still when i got the kids in car dread to think !!
