I’m in the process of rebuilding a 1999 Mazda Miata. I picked up some decent Mazdaspeed (Bilstein) struts/springs for it, with the understanding that one of the struts had been bent in an accident and needs to be replaced.
Now that I have the coil spring off the strut, I notice that it too is slightly bent.
I’ve attached a picture of the bent coil spring.
Do you guys think it’s salvageable, or should I just replace it?
This is a sports car, so performance of the springs does matter-- but is this enough damage for me to actually notice?
