    Default Spring shock!

    Had the shock of my life with my suspension last week! (excuse the pun )
    I took the car into an independent mechanic on Friday as the car has been suffering from a knocking noise at the front
    I had previously taken it into vx twice but they told me they had not found any problems

    On inspection the guy found a broken coil spring on the drivers side it had actually snapped completely! I suppose I was lucky the spring didn't come out while I was driving?!

    He replaced both sides and everything is fine now, wanted to post this as a warning to get suspension knocking noises checked out thoroughly by a good mechanic...just incase
