Heard a bang last night so had a look today and my drivers side front spring has snapped.
Dont really want to lower it and thats all ebay has to offer.
Is it best to change them as a pair or will one be ok?
By the way its a 1.8T cupra

I've just sold the front!

AFAIK, they were about £40 (+VAT) each for the 1.4 when the same happened to me. Was cheaper to buy lowering springs all round

Not always better. If you just get lowering springs alone, they will **** up your standard shocks as you're putting more strain/stress on them!

Within about 6-9 months of having lowering springs, did I know about it! Became a VERY harsh ride, until I replaced the 1.4 shocks with cupra shocks
