Re: Ugent help needed. Broken Spring. Laguna II

Springs now replaced.
35 each from Euro Car Parts.

I could not work out how to slide the bottom of the Shock from its mount. It simply would not move once the bolt was removed ?.
So use a single spring compressor on the spring to compress about 2.5". Then they just popped into place.
Took about 20 mins per side.

It was odd. This is a 2003 car, with 98,000 miles on it. The springs looked perfect. Very clean, without any rust. And yet one had fractured with a very clean break.
Still i guess these things happen.....
