    Default Spring Went Bang! New Ones Needed. What shall I go for? Opinions Please.

    As Title,
    My drivers side rear spring went with a bang while I was parked up waiting for the better half to come out of the shops. I thought someone had shot my back end..... What a bang.

    So I'm now lookin to change. Do I just replace the broken one or go with a full set of better quality spring?

    My car is the Signum Design so an SRI set up is needed or maybe something a little lower??

    The VX ones are not fit for purpose IMHO (Cheap engineering, Sooooo fradgile).

    Eibach pro -30mm much stronger spring. And not much more than you'd pay for a pair of standard rear springs anyway

    Any links? Is it a big job doing all 4? The rears look easy to do.
    I have all of the tools to do the job.

    what about insurance?
