    Default Broken Rear Spring

    Looking for info for mate.......

    they have a broken rear spring and car failed the MOT. Car is a 1.8 55 plate.

    Replace 1 or both? How much (ballpark figure) for supply and fit of 2 x rears? Mr A Clark has quoted £200. That is one option the other is sourcing and fitting (I have done a front spring and guess that the rears would be easier) but getting the correctly rated ones for the model may mean going to the main dealer anyway = £££££'s
