    Took the car today for the MOT and failed due to a snapped off side rear spring.

    How easy is it to DIY? I'm picking up a pair of springs tomorrow from nottingham audi for £52 each.

    Anyone have any advice or a guide on how to do this? Also will i have to have the wheels aligned when its done?

    Thanks, Dave.

    One of mine was snapped when I changed my suspension and it had resently passed a mot. Its a common fault. They are easy to change.
