I thought it was a good day!-mot fail on a broken spring on my Audi (all else good)

Bit simpler for me being a rear spring, but the fronts on the civic are reasonably straightforward.

Plenty of info' on here how members have tackled the job. Worth mentioning there's a train of thought states both springs should be changed to maintain the handling integrity as the other will almost certainly have degraded compared to new.

It's not the end of the world is it? Just replace the spring.
