To be fair , we are seeing a few broken springs......
Blimey , but glad you got sorted
It is nice to stand back after you have done a job like that

One old spring and one new one?
I'd be changing both, if not all four tbh.
I think the wisdom of replacing both springs when only one is broken is probably 90% sales related. My wife's Golf had a broken front spring and I only replaced the broken one. Looks and handles exactly the same as before.

Shockers are the ones that usually wear , bad practice to replace just 1 of them , but springs......
mmm not as bad
The only thing is , if you have had issues with 1 then it could be another
but no generally shockers

I had my front spring snap when i hit a pot hole, only replaced one and the car feels fine to drive and looks level.
