    Angry Why does it always happen at christmas

    I got my brother over today to investigate an intermittent knocking noise from the front of the car, checked drivers side....all ok. Went to turn the car around and BANG!!! WTF!!! Turns out the front N/S spring had just broken.

    Having just paid out £310 for 3 new shoes for it now this....£130 for front springs. Just hope it was the spring causing the knocking otherwise more ££££!

    Oh well....looks like the wife will have to wait for her pressie this year!

    Mind you if you are good with spanners, and have the tools it is not too difficult to change a front spring. Though I would change the pair at the same time.

    Yeah, scary thing is that we just got back from scotland on Wednesday after doing 800 miles, would have been most inconvenient if it had snapped up there!

    Get some eibach springs all round for about £150, then you know it wont happen again on any of the other corners and by chance you will have lowered it at the same time so at least one of you gets a xmas prezzie
