I noticed the near side front on my car is sitting a little lower than the other side, maybe as much as 10mm

I’ve looked at the strut and I’ve not got a cracked spring, but the shoc does look rusty, bump stops have gone and the top plate is quite corroded.

Any thoughts on which components it’s likely to be, as I’ve got PASM i’m hoping not the £500 shock.

Thanks

They are known for spring breaks and sometimes just the bottom part breaks away and you can't see it.

Agree

10mm difference in height and i would strongly suspect a broken spring .. you have the feel around the base of the spring .. if a gap between the spring and the base lock (a raised section ) then its broken .

Pasm is a little tricky to change .. if the top nut spins the shaft then it will kill the shock .. you have to go slow on these and kinda keep your fingers crossed .

Many Thanks to you both.... will check in the morning. Thinking if I f*** it up then a good opportunity to put something different on all round.
