Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is Michael, I would like to help you.
Springs should always be replaced axially. If one is broken, both springs must be replaced to maintain driving stability. Otherwise it can happen that one side has worse suspension than the other.
The springs themselves usually cost between £80 and £100 each. On Ebay etc. it is usually a bit less. However, it is a bit more effort to install, because to exchange the springs the whole strut has to be removed. After the repair the axle has to be readjusted. I estimate the total cost of springs and assembly at £400 to £600. Depending on the workshop, different hourly rates apply and some small parts are needed.
I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
No, as long as the spring is only corroded it is not, but it will break sometime, then it has to be replaced. Check the springs regularly.
