View Full Version : Broken front spring!?

Well i went off the road last week and found out the front suspension spring is broke. I have no body damage but somehow the freakin spring snapped. my question is do i need an alignment when i am done putting the new one in and will i need a spring compressor if the spring is broke. If i remember correctly you don't need to put spring on the strut, correct? i've swapped out struts on a Neon before, just checking here to be positive.

You'll need a spring compressor because our cars used MacPherson struts on all four corners. You don't have to get an alignment, but anytime you remove a strut assembly, it's always a good idea.
