So your springs are shot and you have to replace them, what do you do? First of all, unless you are an advanced home mechanic, it probably isn't worth the stress and the time of working it out. Go to your trusted mechanic, but don't replace your springs with factory parts. Yes, that's right, in your older car, using the same car parts that came in it are not necessarily the best shot. Go for new springs and your handling and overall drivability will improve so much, you will wonder why you didn't do it before!
