Damaged coil springs 1.6 mtj 2010

Howdy,

Please help me, I have a big dilemma.
I broke my springs on the front suspension, bought some new ones for replacement (average prices), but surprise, the mechanic told me they are not good, they have some another diameter and there is the risk of jumping out off the pad.
These new springs were taken with the car id series (ZFA32300003112513).
What I don't understand, how do I know what odds I need to stop having that risk?
I received the offer of original springs at some stores, quite expensive, I would buy them, but I'm afraid if there is same that risk?
Or to change the mechanic ..

Thank you!

You may just have been unlucky with the first springs you bought. Common parts like that should be easy to match using your registration.

You need to check what shock absorber you have. Pekidi shows that mine car uses regular or sport suspension, Ive checked absorber and bought sport coil springs and I had no problem.
I hope you understand what I was trying to say 😁
