Angry coil springs

Another trip to the dealers, 1 front coil spring snapped on my 57 350 slk at 44000 miles, so both front springs changed . Don't know if there's a problem with them or the state of our roads.

Same here, I had a broken n/s/f spring and a broken o/s/r spring, only thing we found which could have affected the spring was a snail. I think it had eaten the spring?
