    seem pretty common with the state of the roads now,
    both of my rear springs had snapped last year on my old SRi-T and i didnt notice until MOT time,

    heard of quite a few peoples going,
    Drives - 08 Astra SRi XP 1.9CDTi 150

    Very common fault, the paint flakes off, the spring rusts and the small coil snaps, my advice is buy a new spring kit for around £120 rather than 1 new standard spring for £50 (Eibach 30/30 is a good kit)
