    Rear coil spring

    Just had the "g" back from it's MOT and had to shell out because one of the rear coil springs had snapped. Does anyone know if this is a common problem or what might have caused it? also I didn't notice anything whilst driving. it's a 99 (T) 1.8 sport 5dr. would the stiff dampers made it not as noticable?

    thanks
