    My friends car is sagging to the right side, springs and shocks are stock. He only wants to change one, i think that it is the struts that are bad. He thinks opposite. Can springs go bad and make a car sag?

    most likely a blown/bad shock or strut. its best to replace them in pairs to keep the car balanced. the likelyhood of one or two stock springs going bad on their own is pretty slim. check the shocks and struts by pushing down on the corners of the bumpers with your hand. if you get more than one good size bounce, that shock/strut is bad.

    shocks and struts DO NOT change your ride height . . . springs is what controls your ride height. . . if its a 90-93 broken front springs is a usual problem
