Replaced springs that were getting worn down. First time springs replaced and car is 11 years old, so I'm quite happy with how long they lasted me. :) When in for new springs, they found that the left-front spring perch was severely rusted and about to fail, so they had to replace that too. This really increased the bill, so I'm quite unhappy that this wasn't properly noticed previously.
