2001 Acura CL 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 112000 miles
I have aftermarket sport springs on my car. I found out a few days ago that the passenger side rear spring is broken. I don't think I will keep the car longer than 6-8 months, so I hesitate to spend $1200 I am being quoted to: Re-install the original springs that I have (all 4, since they are different height than the current ones on the car) and install new struts at the same time.
1. Can I get awy with only replacing the one broken spring? Or do I have to, at minimum, replace both rear springs at the same time?
2. How can I obtain 1 replacement spring? And how do I ensure it is compatible with the other 3 that are currently on the car?
3. I see sets of 4 new sport springs being sold on eBay for $90 (incl shipping to NY). How do I know if they are any good? What questions about specs can I ask?
FYI, the current springs are Comptech Sport Springs (that lower the car) - but Comptech doesn't make them anymore.
