My front coil spring has snapped and the dealer replaced both front springs and shockers yesterday. The car looks ridiculous as if it's jacked up at the front. I realise that newly fitted suspension may drop slightly as the springs take the weight but it's impossible for it to drop to what it should be. If you put your hand out in front of you, turn it through 90 degrees you can fit it inbetween the tyre and arch.
I've rang several dealers parts' departments and the part number should be 93190523. The dealers have fitted 93190526. They are adamant that the springs are the right part number but admit the car does not look right. They also said that they have cross referenced the parts and ID from the parts they took off. The parts manager said that the shockers and shock mounts have also been replaced and that it might have something to do with that.
You know that feeling when you get annoyed, frustrated and that knotted feeling in your stomach when you know something is not right but nobody will help. That's what I've got right now!!! What makes it worse is that I'm driving to France next week and need it sorted. It's going back into the dealers on Monday but I've got a horrible feeling that they will say there is nothing more they can do. I'm shaking with rage right now !!
If it comes to it I'm even prepared to pay a member on here who lives local to me (Bedlington) for their time to come with me and help me sort it. What the hell do I do if they say that everything is right???? I will apologise in advance if I do not respond to posts straight away as I'm at work tonight but will get to PC ASAP. I've got some pics below and appreciate any help from anyone.
