Hi guys

Is there a recommended change time for springs on a car?

I ask because my car has 150,000 miles on it with the original springs and when I priced some springs on eBay I was pleasantly surprised at how reasonable they are.

I will soon have to change my front shocks and I think, at the prices I seen on eBay, it may be very cost efficient to do the coils at the same time.

I feel my springs may be weak as the car is making a rubbing noise (tyres? can't be flaps - don't have any) when going quickly over succesive shallow bumps.

Would this be a complete waste or have people changed their springs for miraculous results?

Springs certainly sag with age so if you are going to do the shocks then it makes sense to change them over at the same time.

Yep,definately agree with Saabguy.Whilst it's apart a pair of new front springs can only help matters.

Thanks guys, once I know it is not a ridiculous waste of time/money/effort.

I'm looking forward to telling my mechanic his work schedule for the summer: timing belt/pulleys/tensioners/aux belt and water pump followed by pretty much every suspension part up at the front at a later time.

He's never dealt with anyone like me before for thoroughness. :cool:
