Suspension components

A couple of items this week, quite common nowadays is a broken coil spring, this one  found on the front of a Ford Fiesta.

However also found was a broken anti roll bar link, on the other side of the vehicle

It’s possible the link broke away at the balljoint  (highlighted in yellow) owing to the coil spring being broken leading to a mismatch in spring rates between the two sides.

Circled in red is the point where the wiring for the ABS sensor has become entangled around the anti-roll bar, a few more miles and maybe it would lead to the sensor wire becoming broken leading to more expense.
