Stock Rear Spring(s) 2003 325xi

Does anyone have a good rear spring for a 2003 325xi (or a good pair)? Not ready to do a major suspension re-do, but I found that my right rear spring is broken. The quick fix is to just replace that one for the time being. So, if anyone has a good rear spring or set, get back to me with a price.

Thanks.

TR4G, lovesm3s, how much you want for them? Really only interested in the rear pair though since later this spring I will be doing the complete suspension, just need to replace the broken one till I do the entire job. lovesm3s, I'm located west of philly and I get to Mendham/Gladstone area of NJ pretty often.

Would like to find a whole replacement stock suspension. Although I have to admit, I haven't done much searching.

Is this a common problem? Recently I heard a loud "pop" sounded like a gun shot almost. Come to find out a day later the very bottom piece of the coil broke. Haven't noticed much of a difference at all as its still sitting on the resting spot but does anybody have a rear spring for an 04 330xi??

So I checked my records and my two rear springs actually have just 7,557 miles on them. Anyone still lookin for a set?

I can provide proof if need be. PO had rear springs replaced at 148,093. I decided to overhaul the rest of the suspension at 155,650 with KW V1's.
