Hi Guys I have a 2001 mk 3 mondeo estate 2.0tddi zetec manual, recently replaced steel wheels with 18inch ronal st alloys and while doing so I noticed the front passenger side spring was sheered in two. It is barely supported and the top half is currently resting on the bottom half, I was wondering is it a difficult job to replace them, I have a full socket set , spanors ,.jack and spring compressors, Would a scrap yard saloon mk 3 mondeo part fit? and where do the bump stops go when putting back on. Between the coils or between the top of the shock and the housing? and info would be greatly appreciated as I am a new member
