Ready for my “just in case” stock as it was commented on the last mot (but not an advisory) that the front springs were getting heavy rust spots. This could cause stress risers which makes the spring vulnerable to breaking of you hit something like a pot hole – especially on cold winter days ….. which are approaching.
So might decide to fit them anyway as the whole original strut is looking a bit rough around the edges. Would make a good winter project.
It is always recommended to replace these springs in pairs to ensure the spring rate on each side is the same.
