#1 of 5 2002 explorer rear coil springs
Jul 08, 2009 (4:20 pm)
I have an 02 exp with 42000 miles. I have never towed or hauled anything heavy.
i got the oil changed a few weeks ago and they told me both rear coils springs were broke. Has anybody else seen this?

i have an '02 also,and just had the rear springs replaced at 88k because they were broken.
there were several opportunities for that.
the back end had a sag before i got them and the shocks replaced.
not a cheap repair.

hi, yes, i had the same thing. apparently its a common thing in 02s. had the trans rebuilt, and the springs replaced this last summer. both sides had cracks in them. i have never taken the thing off road or done anything to make that happen. when i found out about it, the guy at the shop said it was common in 02s.
