    I fitted some apex lowering springs around 6 months ago and found the coilsprings tapping(WHEN GOING OVER SPEED HUMPS) so i cut and fitted some 2/3 small pieces of garden hose on the actual springs to dampen the noise........would this fail an M.O.T ?

    As long as the springs haven't broken/ cracked/ incorrectly fitted or drop out when the car is jacked up it will be ok. There are several vehicle manufacturers and spring manufacturers that have insulating sleeves fitted as standard so it won't be an issue.
