springs not even 8 months old i know its a common fault on these cars but i assumed it was the gm spring and going to after market would stop that happening i mean they werent expensive springs to say the least but still crazy :crazy::crazy::crazy:

Did you change top bearing when doing springs. Had broken spring on last car and bearing was rock solid which I assume causes 90% of the front spring failures. Was the coating intact on the spring? Whatever you do, try and replace the pair.

Sounds like you had a lucky escape, had on snap on a Pug and it wnet stright through the inside wall of the front tyre - which was nice.

Only problem you may have is proving the miles i know they are less that a year old however is the warranty miles related and if so, how would you prove?

Any decent company should swap without a problem, keep us updated with progress - tbh i would want a different make of spring.
