Ok my right front spring broke on my truck, just noticed it tonight when I was changing my oil. They are Hotchkis springs which I bought from TByrne Motorosports. They are on my 2004 GMC Sierra, they are 2inch drop spring, they have less than 4,000 miles on them, and that is all highway miles. I would have never known if I did not change my oil tonight. What are yalls thought, opinions, and suggestions. I have pictures, but I am unsure on how to post them.

It's all one spring though, if one ring snapped, it would affect the whole spring... it might even cause the whole spring to slip out of the pocket.

Defiinately get a photo of the spring up ASAP.

To me it looks like if one of the coils broke off it would be the same as cutting a coil or two and your truck would drop 2" or so on that one side.

I can't even upload the pics in an email without my computer freezing up on me. Anyone have some ideas on this problem?

:think: So where did the coil break? Top, bottom, middle? Either way, it sucks, but it's not anything the manufacturer wouldn't cover. No matter where it broke I'd think you'd see a ride height difference, not to mention a difference in ride.
