Hi all
Here goes, been quiet too long.....
Replaced a broken spring on a 2000 ( i think!)(memory gone) 306 Hdi and it just didn't seem to sit right. I took off the other side leg, as i always replace springs in pairs, and that one was the same, the top coil was almost jumping over the top plate, and the next coil was only just in its seat.
It's hard to explain, i do have photos, but no idea how to put them on!
Anyone know what i'm on about?
Bill

yep i think i do, what you are saying is that the coil spring apart from being broken has worked it way above the mounting plate.

the reasons that i have seen that have caused this were.

1/ the shockers were too weak.

2/ the top bearing had seized

Regards Cyril

I'll try to post the pics, not very good quality, i took them with my phone. The top bearings are fine, and the shocks seem very strong still.

Bill,

From what I can see of the picture, I would address Kevins comments first.
