Be prepared for the dealer to suggest that this is the result of impact damage (i.e. kerb or pothole/speed bump). You need to use the fact that your other spring is in good shape after the same mileage (therefore its had the same wear & tear), and that this is the result of a manufacturing defect. If your wheels/tyres are in good shape, this will lend extra weight to your arguement.

I hope they don't put up a fight, as this will be a difficult one to prove either way.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
