They will lower an AMG Sport only very slightly around 10mm.


LEB do you have a wagon or loon ?

You're missing the point , the other spring might not be far behind snapping .
Actually, no I'm not missing the point.
The spring had snapped and not worn out.
I don't know if it was a fault in the spring or the wheel had hit a pothole previously. Either way, it just snapped.
If the OP uses a different brand or spec of spring than definitely both sides should be replaced.
I replaced with an identical MB spring with the same colour markings.
I had the car for about two years after I replaced one spring and the other side was fine.

I am not saying that you shouldn't replace both sides but just that it isn't mandatory.
Replacing shock absorbers is different. If one side is worn out, they should be replaced in pairs.

Hi OneForTheRoad just checked spring it has 3 red dots and a white. It also has a barcode label with B2 on it.
Got a pair of Monroe SP3845 from Autodoc earlier this year, 3 x red & 1 x white, I think about £80 for the pair delivered.
