Just an aside question - what do they accomplish because with a broken spring I didn't notice any difference in driving, no sagging rear end, etc. Are they just there to assist the shocks, which can stand up on their own as long as they're working?
you don't notice right away, some drivers don't notice for long period of time including Grandma.

Spring keeps your car lvl correct.
Shocks takes the hit from pot holes and yes spring also works together to help.

Get that fix before it affects handling ability and put stress on bushings etc.
