    Default Bouncy Rear

    For over the last 9 months Ive had a bouncy rear end on my car and replaced all the shocks, had my mot and had a broken spring.

    I have now replaced the two reaer springs but have noticed they are different lengths, the broken fractured one (black one) is actually longer even without the missing bit thatn the complete other side :O

    I'm guessing the previous owner replaced a single spring with the wrong kind.

    Picture below of the old springs

    For what it costs, and for how long it takes, best replace both rear springs and shockers

    I have replaced both rear springs with standard ones now, did the rear shocks 2 months ago, will see how it goes shocks seem fine and as they were about the same length.

    hopefully not too much strain has been put on the shock. Time will tell.

    I was surprised how easy it was to change
