Do I need to replace both front springs at the same time and am i better to source from Renault or a motor factor? also, how much of a job is it to replace them? have all the necessary tools apart from a spring compressor.
Just what you need in the run up to the festive season!!
Seems a very common problem on all makes of cars today I'm afraid
I think it is recommended to replace both sides but it is up to the individual obviously it will be double the cost and time involved.
You can get springs from most good motor factors.
A good spring compressor is essential.
You need to be very careful when compressing the springs.
Hopefully a Member who has changed springs will offer further advice
