    Well the first pic does look like part of a broken spring, but if you can't see anything missing on yours then maybe it's off another car? Odd though that it was sat on your drive.

    Have you reached in and had a good feel of all the four springs to see if you can feel anything amiss (or missing)? If it is yours, I'd have thought you'd have felt it when driving.

    it's the tail end of a rear spring.....

    if it sits level then you may be alright with it..but get it replaced soon..

    Sorry if i'm wrong,but that spring can't have come from a front because the strut insert would hold it in,looks like a rear to me,could be someone playing a joke!.

    if in any doubt, leave it at home...

    get a new spring fitted.. it's easy to do and the spring won't cost the earth....
