Hope you were able to get this to the shop safely. Did you have to replace the coil springs on both sides? How much did they end up charging for the repair?

That is great news! Talk about cutting it close!

Got real lucky on this one. there was a recall for these coils and we squeaked in under the 150,000 mile cut-off limit at 149,801 miles. Got both coils replaced and damaged strut replaced all for free at a ford dealership. Towing was free as well.
