front coil spring has half came off while driving along (lots of smoke as riubbining against tyre)
well more half of the spring is hanging over the bottom suspension stop/strut
M.O.T was only 2 days ago and only drive 30-40 mile since....?
Spring does not looked cracked.....?
Any ideas on what caused....?
I suppose i would need some spring compressors and unbolt the top from engine bay once jacked up...?

Spring compressors should be all you need to relocate the spring once jacked up.
Did you bounce over a speed hump?
Sometimes the wheels will drop if the hump is high or going too fast.

further inspection the spring at the bottom snapped so it was wider, replaced with a new one which was a bit of a pig of a job but all done now.....
