If the coil spring is broken I wouldn't use it I would get a different one. The coil spring support's the weight of the car.

It the very first coil under the mount at the top. When I put it on the car the two peices seated together under the top mount and don't seem to be moving from the weight of the car. Could I weld it? The original coil on the car is worn out and the car is bottoming out. Will this atleast buy me sometime?

You can't weld that spring together when they break there trash. Iam not going to recommend you drive around with a broken coil spring you can do as you wish but iam not putting my stamp of approval on it.
