Broken Coil Spring Replace?? or Not
I recently took my car to mechanic for starting problems and they told me I had a broken coil spring. I am pretty sure it broke recently when my car took a 180 turn when I hit a pile of snow when exiting from freeway. Luckily car didnt hit anything and no one was injured.
Now my question is should I replace it or not. The mechanic wants to charge $700 to replace both, install and align. I really dont want to spend that much.
Can I just drive without replacing. Mechanic was telling it might get into way of my tire and burst it. I am not sure how.
Can I just find a salavge spring and just get one replaced??
p.s. I have 2001 Altima with Almost 135K
