The coil springs support the weight of your car, from each corner. If one of them breaks, your car won’t be supported in that corner. So, if you spot your car leaning - to one side, or to one corner - then you may have some busted coil springs.
If the coil springs are failing, you may notice less of a lean and more of the car just being way too low. It will look funny, that is, if you’re perceptive enough to notice the difference. The coil springs hold your car up. If they’re not doing their job, they won’t hold your car up. Just imagine yourself without calves. That’s your car with faulty coil springs. Not so fun, huh?
Please tell me this isn’t new information to you, but your car shouldn’t make bizarre noises. If it does make bizarre noises, it’s usually because something is wrong, and that something should be fixed. If your car has some busted coil springs, then it will likely make a knocking noise. You’ll notice this noise coming from the suspension when you drive over bumps, or other imperfections in the road. It’s the sound of malfunctioning coil springs being forced into action and failing. When in doubt, listen to your car.Get a Quote 1-Year | 12,000-Mile Warranty
Your car is safe to drive short distances when it has a broken coil spring. But this probably isn’t the best time to do that procrastination thing you’re so good at.
The longer you drive a car without a fully functioning shock absorption system, the more pressure and impact is put on the suspension, which can lead to further damage. Ignore a damaged coil spring, and you could find yourself with an entirely busted suspension.
Is that what you want? Don’t answer that. It’s a rhetorical question. That is not what you want.
