Something fully mangin'
For front springs to sit like this, with the coils literally touching each other?? I tried comparing the left front but I don't think it's as bad ill have to have a better look.. My rears are like that, but I never noticed the front was.

When I go over speed bumps or a pot hole, there is a slight rattle in the front right hand side as of the last few days.. I thought maybe the shock had come loose in the strut, but everything seems to be in tact.. Sway bars etc. Bushes are a little worn but not to make a rattle noise like that.. It's not a clunking noise, just a rattle like something is loose... Any ideas? Could it be the spring has sagged?

Cheers

Sab

no definately not... if the coils sit on top of each other then there is no suspension travel...
