Well here is one take on it.
A coil breaks and you just lowered your car.
Cut the others off the same amount.
The shorter springs will be stiffer, but til February?

Never had a spring break as well. But, I am wondering about my new to me 2014. normal sounding on most roads, but my daughter is taking Drivers Ed right now, and the road to the place is pretty rough. last night, my rear passenger side is making all kinds of noise when on the rough road. smooth road, no issues. I'm thinking I may need to put the back end up to check, I still have 2K/2months left before the used car warranty is up.

Rear driver side of my 2010 Sportwagen broke last winter. First really cold day I went to leave for work and clunk! Top coil was laying in the driveway. New springs and shocks in December.

Mine broke too, I went to a junkyard and got another one for $20 bucks. Takes maybe 15 minutes to change. Jack car up, wheel off, i think 19mm bolts to drop the control arm, pop new spring in (old one probably fell out by now!) and reassemble.

I tow and load the car heavy but still, the springs are crap!! Hopefully i don't have to do it again until I turn the car back in to VW

(I drove around for about a month on the broken spring - only one coil had come off. NOT GOOD FOR TIRE WEAR!!! )

I only ever broke one and it was on a 64 Rambler that was already around thirty years old. If springs are breaking routinely I think it has to be from defective materials or flaws in the heat treating process.
