Coil springs again.

Even vehicles designed for off road use are not immune to the problem of broken coil springs, such as this one found on a Landrover. This particular vehicle doesn’t get much in the way of off road use, the occasional trip across a muddy caravan/camping site, but nothing in the way of serious off road use.

A follow on from my post regarding classic vehicles becoming exempt from Mot tests, it’s understandable when vehicles like this consul come in for test. The owner has owned it since the 1970’s when it was his engineering college project.

As such it gets very little road use and plenty of care and attention before venturing onto the road.
The underside was as immaculate as this engine bay

It’s always a pleasure to test vehicles like these and to chat to the owners and learn some of the history of the vehicle.
