I just jack up and put on axle stands then undo lower shock mounts and axle drops down enough to remove springs (always recommended that you change the pair) then trolley jack under spring platform and jack up to refit shock bolts

+1

you have to undo both shocks to get the axle down enough so may as well do both springs together. had to do mine for last mot, both were broken

doddle of a job

Agree with everything above,just one more tip.
If you have been driving with a broken spring rattling around,it's possible for one of the plastic spring mounts to fall out and get lost.

Trouble is one side will be tighter and make the car sag in one side

Taking both shock bolts off and letting the subframe drop is the best way

If the spring is broken it makes it a lot easier

I would have done the pair
But some people just want to get back up running again at less cost
Cannot believe how many mot failures are because of broken springs
Saw a car with all four broken ... how do you not know when your driving ?
Ignorance ? or just adapt your driving style

Why they haven't cured the broken spring steel fault ?
Might get better now as China has stopped importing our old plastic ?
Big business for garage mechanics / parts / spring manufacturers ?

I knew something was wrong with ours just couldn't see anything wrong.

when it failed the mot and I took the old springs off and compared them to new ones I could see that the bottom ends had come off both springs - I guess they are lying by the side of a road somewhere - as the ends had broken in more or less the same place and fallen off, both sides of the car looked the same to me.

So it was a case of me not really knowing what I was looking at.

bit funny they both failed around the same point and time, does make you wonder.
