    Right to cut a long story short I used my car last Friday and went down a road with about 20 humps in the road. I went over them slightly faster than normal but nothing too serious or suspension bumping.. I have learnt from previous cars.

    Today driving my car to work I noticed a knocking on every bump on the front ns and the first thing I thought damn the drop link arm is on its way out. I quickly pulled in at Aldi and as soon as I pulled out and went 100 yards straight down the side street i heard a bang and turning the wheel is nearly impossible. I feel like the front as dipped. I had 10min to get into work so I had to leave my car at the side of the road.

    I finish work at 1am so more photos to follow tomorrow. What could be the possible problem here?

    Wow. Never in my life have I had a spring fail and my cars are driven like they're stolen, everywhere. We love a good speedbump here in London.

    I went back to my car on my break and I did indeed find a piece of the coil spring on the road.. How much am I looking if I took it to a garage??

    About £150, maybe less. Assuming it's still driveable. More if you need it recovering.
