Hey all! I love my car after just getting it! I put almost 2,500 miles on it and when I was cleaning my car, I noticed it was sitting low. I looked under and saw this... Also before this happened, I noticed that my car would rock side to side or kinda shimmy left and right after going over a bump. I think I went over a speed bump today but not that fast.

2 out of those 3 pics are solid black for me. The one in the middle shows a broken right rear spring. Quick and easy to replace. Get a pair from the JY or buy a set from Rock Auto or elsewhere.

It happens. When your changing the springs don't forget to put a new pair of shocks in.
Rust never sleeps....especially in the salt zone.

Spring broke due to rust. It's happened to me. Heard it at night and it sounded like a shotgun.
