NSR snapped on my '03 3.0 and OSR looking worse for wear. Replaced both with Suplex springs. Easiest spring change I've ever done!

As an update of my post, when I took the car in for the spring i'd noticed, it turned out the other rear was snapped too.
With both done she should be good for a while.

Both the rear coils cracked at 68k on my 58 plate 2.0i,
the coupe had new before I bought it so here's hoping they last a while!
