Yesterday I was driving home from work and heard a loud noise which I can only really describe as a "clang". After looking at it today, it looks like the spring for the front left (passenger side) suspension has snapped at the bottom.
Here is a picture of the damage:
I've already had a couple of friends advise that this is still safe to drive in this condition and was really just looking for some clarification that this is, in fact, safe to drive for a very short term basis (since I need it to get to work).
I have it booked in to get repaired in a few days so it really will be quite short term, and the mileage covered during this time will be about 60 miles.
Keeping in mind that the break is on the first coil, and that the car hasn't lowered all that much in this corner, is this going to be safe for me to drive for a couple of days until it gets repaired?
