Suspension Query

Just passed the MOT at the second attempt, having initially failed on a broken o/s/f suspension coil. I hadn't even noticed any noise or change in the handling, but upon closer inspection it was shot. The after sales warranty I have covered the bulk of the cost though and I had no other advisories, so I am quite a happy chappy. Really enjoying this car more than ever just now!

Just one query over the suspension - should I have had these coils replaced as a pair (as with brake pads) or is there generally no benefit in this?

Re: Suspension Query

Yes. One side will now be stiffer than the other. The only thing like that i wouldn't do in pairs is a wheel bearing.
